GED Testing Information
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.
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. You must submit the signed form to the Testing Center before you can sign up for the test.
