The GED Tests are designed to measure learning generally acquired in a high school course of study.
Scores are determined by administering the test to graduating seniors.
The content is drawn from content taught in high school.
What is a passing score?
An average of 450 points for a total of 2,250 points for all five subtests
Where can I take the test?
- You can take the test at various locations in Boone & Kenton Counties
What does it cost?
The cost is $55 – payable by money order. You can get money orders at the post office or Wal-Mart.
You only have to retake the sections in which you need to work.
It is $25.00 for each section you retake.
You may retake a test up to 3 times a year.
But you will pass because you must pass an official practice test before you are allowed to take the actual test and because we have a 100% pass rate for all Grant County students we send to take the GED test. You can do it!
