The GED tests are the five tests of General Educational Development.
They are available for adults who did not graduate from high school.
You must be 19 to take the test. If you are under age 19 you must get an age waiver.
Each test must be completed in a certain amount of time.
* Some people qualify for extra time.
A list of the accommodations is available at the end of this presentation.
You can take tests one at a time.
In fact, we recommend that students do take the GED tests one test at a time.
* The entire group of tests takes 7 and a quarter hours to take.
Over half of the items on the test are presented in graphic form.
Maps, graphs, charts, photographs, and other graphics are part of the GED.

Hubbs Center here in Saint Paul.

The testing fee is $95.00 for all five tests.
*You may qualify for a reduced rate of $75.00. More info about the reduced rate is available in the testing rm. 104.
The GED consists of 5 tests.
Except for Part 2 of the Writing Test and 10 items on the Math test the GED tests are all multiple choice.
*Part 2 of the Writing Test requires the student to write a short essay.
You must have a combined score of 2,250 points.
That’s an average of 450 points per test. 410 is a passing score but you will need to make up other points on another test.
You can retake each of the tests twice in one calendar year. That means you have a total of three chances from January to December.
When you pass the GED tests you will get a certificate regarded as a high school diploma.
Employers in private industry and government accept the GED certificate as they would a high school diploma.
Almost all colleges and universities accept GED graduates who meet their
other qualifications for admission.
