GED BW Logo 

As of January 2014, GED will be transitioning to a computer-based version. Scores from the computer-based test will not be compatible with the current paper version; therefore, if an examinee does not successfully complete all five sections of the GED on the paper version, he or she will need to start testing all over after January 2014 on the computer-based version.

AGE REQUIREMENTS Minimum age for taking the GED is 16. If you are under 19 years old, you must submit a release form (Request for Approval to Test for General Educational Development (GED) Diploma) signed by an official at the last high school you attended or from your local school district office.

DAY OF THE TEST Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes early. Testing will start at times listed. Latecomers will not be admitted. You must show current photo ID at check-in for each test or you will not be permitted to test. Children may not accompany you to tests.

SCORING You must have a minimum battery average score of 450 and a minimum score of 410 on each of the five sections to pass the GED. Writing test results take approximately two weeks to process; other sections are scored within 5 business days. You will receive results by mail. Scores are confidential and will not be released over the phone or to anyone else without your written permission.

RETESTING If needed, you can retake each section of the test two times after the initial test during one calendar year. Retests are $30 for each test. You must wait one month before retesting. If you are trying to increase your battery average to the minimum, your Writing score cannot be on hold and you must retake failed sections first before retaking a passed section for a higher score.

DIPLOMA A GED diploma will be mailed to you approximately three weeks after you have successfully passed the test.
