What is GED Exam?

The General Educational Development (GED) Test is designed for people who, for various reasons, did not graduate from high school but want a certificate equivalent to the traditional high school diploma. The examination tests knowledge in five subject areas: Language Arts, Writing; Language Arts, Reading; Mathematics; Science; Social Studies.

The GED Test Battery consists of five (5) subtests that measure the essential academic skills and concepts of a traditional high school education.

Language Arts, Reading: 65 minutes
Language Arts, Writing:
120 minutes

Mathematics: 90 minutes

Science: 80 minutes

Social Studies: 70 minutes

The examinee must pass each subtest with a minimum score of four hundred and ten (410) points and a minimum total score of 2250 points. If the examinee does not pass a subtest the first time, the examinee may retest two more times, with a total of three opportunities per contract year. If the examinee passes all of the tests but does not earn the minimum 2250 points to pass the battery, the examinee may retest any one of the five tests in an effort to reach 2250 points.

Keep in mind: five (5) subtests x three (3) attempts per year = fifteen (15) tests per contract year.

Many examinees are able to pass the test battery without special preparation. However, a number of GED instructional programs in the Bay Area offer a practice test to those who have questions about their abilities to pass the real test. GED classes are offered at various City College campuses free of charge to potential examinees if you are in San Francisco, CA.

The GED test is given in both English and Spanish with special editions available for the legally blind. Modifications and special accommodations for learning or physically disabled students can be provided with advance arrangements with the Chief Examiner and with State GED approval.

According to the American Council on Education, among the many benefits of the GED program, passing the GED Tests provides an opportunity for adults to continue their education. In fact, 93 percent of colleges and universities accept GED graduates who meet their other qualifications for admission.

A GED diploma documents that you have high school level skills. About 96 percent of employers accept the GED diploma as equal to a traditional high school diploma.
