Frequently Asked Questions About GED

When did the GED test change?  In January 2014 the GED Test changed.  The new test reflects the current curricular and academic standards for high school graduates.  The test is administered at a testing center, and is taken on a computer.

What are some of the advantages?  The new test has many advantages for the testers, including the availability of results after completion of the test module, and an opportunity of taking individual test modules instead of taking the complete test at one time.

What is on the test and how will it be scored?  The new test consists of four modules: language arts, mathematical reasoning, science, and social studies.  The modules will have a score range of 100 to 200.  A passing score is 150 or better, with a combined passing score of 600 or higher.  The scores are not averaged together.  Testers  must score 150 or higher in each module.

What if I have tested in 2013 (or earlier) and did not pass?  The scores from the old test are not compatible with the new test; old scores cannot be transferred.

What is the cost for the GED test?  The cost for the test is $37.50 per module.  The cost to take the total test is $150.  Testers must pay by credit or debit cards.  Testers must register and pay online.  Testing is done only at a GED Test facility.
