Did you know?

The official General Educational Development (GED) test is composed of five subtests, including:

  • Writing Skills
    This test consists of two parts. Part I is a measure of a candidate’s ability to recognize correct and effective English. It contains questions on sentence structure, capitalization, punctuation, usage, mechanics, and organization. In Part II, the tester demonstrates writing ability with a 250-300 word developed and focused essay.
  • Social Studies
    This test consists of a selection of passages from the fields of economics, political science, history, sociology, and anthropology. Where appropriate, a chart, graph, or map supplements the passage. On the whole, questions test the analysis and application of information and ideas in the passage.
  • Science
    This test consists of a selection of passages on a number of subjects in both the biological and physical sciences. Questions test the examinee’s ability to comprehend and analyze the content of each passage.
  • Interpreting Literature and the Arts
    This test consists of passages of popular literature, classical literature, and commentary on literature and the arts. Questions test the examinee’s ability to comprehend and analyze the content of each passage.
  • Mathematics
    This test consists of mathematical problems in areas of number sense and operations; measurement and geometry, data, statistics and probability; and algebra, functions, and patterns.

The test takes about seven hours to complete and reflects the major and last outcomes normally acquired in a four-year high school program. The minimum score to pass the GED Test is an average of 450; however, individual subtests must score at least 410. Many people get their GED to get a job, advance in a job, to go to college or to qualify for military service.

Adults who are at least 16 years old and are officially withdrawn from school may be eligible to take the official GED test.
