GED TESTING INFORMATION
(para informacion en espanol, haga clic aqui)
As of January 2014, GED has transitioned to a computer-based test. Scores from the computer-based test are not compatible with the paper version; therefore, if an examinee did not successfully complete all five sections of the GED on the paper version, he or she will need to start testing all over on the computer-based version.
