How to sign up for MyGED

GED cost

The Virginia GED exam costs $120 for the 4 subtests or $30 per module/test. A great aspect of the new GED exam is that you can take and pay for just one test when you are prepared for that section. There no longer is the need to take the entire battery at one time, but you need to complete the four subject tests within two years.

The four-test GED exam is a pretty challenging exam so you should get the help you can to get all geared up for the tests, also referred to as modules. The tests are in these academic fields: Science (90 minutes), Social Studies (70 minutes), Literacy (150 minutes), and Math (115 minutes). All across North America is the GED diploma accepted like a high school degree by employers and academic institutions.


The four subtests of General Educational Development (usually called just “GED”) are designed by the American Council on Education (ACE) together with one of the world’s biggest educational publishers Pearson Vue to offer Americans who quit high school without a diploma the chance to acquire a credential that is equivalent to a common high school degree. Check out also this link to all GED school and test centers in America.

The old GED exam had a separate writing section, but that subject has become embedded in the other four subject tests as most multiple-choice questions have been replaced by questions that require essay-styled answering. The GED diploma is your ticket to higher education and will certainly lead to far better job options and a higher income. Check out GED testing in Virginia to see if you qualify.

One test at a time

No longer do you have to sit for the entire battery of four tests in one session spread out over a few days. You can prepare for one testing subject field, and by the time you are ready, register for, schedule, pay for, and take just that part (module). Of course, you can still take more tests at once, but it is doubtful that you will be able to find a testing center that can accommodate all four tests in one day.

The GED credential gives you the chance to continue your academics education in college. Take a look at the following colleges and keep in mind that for top-notch students, getting a scholarship should be possible. You may not have heard of these schools, but listen up.
