The GED® test covers four key areas of education — Reading Through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies. The test includes multiple choice, gridding, graphing and essay question formats and takes about 7 hours to complete. You may take the entire GED® test all at once, or take just one or more topics at a time — you are not required to take the test all at once. The GED® test is also available en español.
Once you're ready, the GED® test is offered as a group, by appointment only. Results are available within three hours of completing the GED® test with the exception of the Writing portion of the test which will take 5 days to receive results. In order to receive a high school equivalency degree, a minimum score of 145 on each subtest is required. If you do not pass certain sections of the test, you may take them again for a small fee.
