The computer-based GED® test has four subjects:

It is offered in English and Spanish.
How do I register to take the GED®?

Visit the ged.com website to complete registration and scheduling testing.
Will my previous Series scores remain valid for the new 2014 test series?
No. Scores cannot be combined from different test series. All incomplete 2002 GED test series scores expired on December 31, 2013. If you did not complete your testing, you will need to complete and pass all four exams in the 2014 test series.
How much does it cost?
The four content areas cost $33.75 each, for a total of $135. If an exam failed, the test-taker can retake the exam two times within twelve months of the is original failed attempt. After the first three attempts, the test-taker will have to wait an additional 90 days to retake the exam.
What does it mean to “pass” the GED® test?
The GED® test will have a passing score of 145 on each test part. Therefore, you will need to reach a score of at least 145 on each part and a total score of 580 across the four-part battery in order to receive your GED® test credential.

The GED® test score levels are:
  • (145-164) – Pass / High School Equivalency
  • (165-174) – GED® College Ready
  • (175-200) – GED® College Ready + Credit
Do I have to take all four exams at one sitting?
No. You can register and pay for one exam at a time.
