Announcement: The 2014 GED® test is computer-based. Announcement: 1/26/16 - Per the GED Testing Service:Effective immediately, the passing score for each GED subject area is now 145 instead of 150, in most states. This means if a student achieves a score of 145 or higher, they have passed that subject area. The updated score levels will be reflected in a tester's score report in GED.com on March 1, 2016, but until then testers should know that if they score 145 or higher, they have passed and there is no need to re-take that test subject. Additionally, on March 1, any test taken since January 1, 2014 with a score between 145 -149 will be automatically updated to show that a student passed. Students who have credentialed as a result of this change will receive their credential soon after March 1.
The content of the new exam will be aligned
to career and college readiness content standards.
There will be four areas on the exam: Reasoning
through Language Arts - which will combine the current Reading and Writing
