NCLEX Acceptable ID

Applicants should refer to the relevant visa information for score requirements.

Official GED Testing Centers are controlled environments. All testing sessions take place either in person or online according to very specific rules, and security measures are enforced. Breaks may be permitted between tests, depending on how many tests are being administered in a session. There may be restrictions on what test-takers may bring into the testing room.[12][13]

There are approximately three to six GED test forms in circulation at any time.[citation needed] This measure helps catch test-takers who may be cheating. As with any standardized test, the various test forms are calibrated to the same level of difficulty.

Regulations governing eligibility to take the GED vary by state. According to GED Testing Service policy, students at least 16 years old and not enrolled in high school are eligible for the program.[14][15] However, many states require the candidate to be 17 years of age and a resident of the state. Some states which allow students under 17 years of age to take the test require a letter of parental consent and a letter of consent from the student's school district.[citation needed] In South Africa and Namibia, students at least 17 years old are eligible for the program.


The cost of the GED test for test-takers varies depending on the state. Currently costs can be as low as $45 as is the case in Maryland, but the typical fees are $120 for all four tests, or $30 for each of the four subject tests.[16][17] Currently the cost of each test outside of the USA is $80 each.

Disabled persons who want to take the GED test may be entitled to receive reasonable testing accommodations.[18] If a qualified professional has documented the disability, the candidate should get the appropriate form from the Testing Center:

  • Physical disability and chronic-health disability (such as blindness, low vision, hearing impairment, and mobility impairment): "Request for Testing Accommodations—Physical/Chronic Health Disability" form
  • Learning or cognitive disability (such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, receptive aphasia, and written-language disorder): "Request for Testing Accommodations—Learning and Other Cognitive Disabilities" form
  • Emotional or mental-health disorder (such as bipolar disorder, Tourette's syndrome, and schizophrenia): "Request for Testing Accommodations—Emotional/Mental health" form
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (inattentive type, hyperactive–impulse type, or combined type): "Request for Testing Accommodations—Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder" form

The candidate returns the completed form to the GED testing center. Each request is considered individually. If accommodations are approved, the local GED testing examiner will conduct the testing with the approved accommodations, which are provided at no extra charge.[citation needed] Accommodations may include, but are not limited to:[citation needed]

  • Audio cassette tests
  • Braille or large-print tests
  • Vision-enhancing technologies
  • Use of video equipment
  • Use of a talking calculator or abacus
  • Use of a sign language interpreter
  • Use of a scribe (a person who writes down the test-taker's answers)
  • Extended testing time

Internet Registration

Possible scores on an individual test within the GED battery range from a minimum of 100 to a maximum of 200.[19] A score of 200 on an individual test puts the student in the top 1% of graduating high school seniors. ACE issues recommendations for what constitutes a minimum passing score for any given sub-test (currently 145) and for the test as a whole (currently 580—i.e., an average of 145 per test across all four sub-tests). Although most GED-issuing jurisdictions (for the most part, Boards of Education of U.S. states) adopt these minimum standards as their own, a jurisdiction may establish higher standards for issuance of the certificate if it chooses. Many jurisdictions award honors-level equivalency diplomas to students meeting certain criteria higher than those for a standard diploma in a given jurisdiction.[20] Some districts hold graduation ceremonies for GED tests passers and/or award scholarships to the highest scorers.[citation needed]

Colleges admit that grades based upon high school may require a minimum score on the GED test for admittance based upon the test. For example, Arizona State University requires an average sub-test score of 500 in addition to the certificate.[21]

If a student passes one or more, but not all four tests within the battery, he or she only needs to retake the test(s) not passed. Most places limit the number of times students may take each individual test within a year.[citation needed] A student may encounter a waiting period before being allowed to retake a failed test.[citation needed] Tests must be completed by the expiration date, which is generally every two years on the last day of the year.[citation needed]

The GED test is available in many countries around the world. Since 2015, the GED test has become popular in African countries including South Africa and Namibia.[citation needed]

Many government institutions and universities regard the GED test credential as the same as a high school diploma with respect to program eligibility and as a prerequisite for admissions. The U.S. military, however, has explicitly higher requirements in admissions for GED test takers to compensate for their lack of a traditional high school diploma.[22] The test is administered to a representative sample of graduating high-school seniors each year, about 30% of whom fail the test. That only 70% of these students pass the test may show that it is harder than commonly believed.[23]

Please Note:

The GED certification itself (i.e., without further post-secondary education or training) does not create the same labor market opportunities available to traditional high school graduates.[24] While people who have earned the GED test credential tend to earn more than dropouts and less than high school graduates, economist James Heckman has found that this is primarily due to existing differences in the characteristics and backgrounds of GED test graduates. When controlling for other influences, he finds no evidence that, for the average taker, the GED test credential improves an individual's economic opportunities above those for other dropouts.[24]

Some say overall, there is a certain level of stigma for GED certification holders that affects employability or pursuit of higher education.[25][26]

Telephone Registration

There are calls for the GED to be abolished. Those who support abolishing the GED say the program reduces high school graduation rates,[27] is outmoded, and a financial burden for low-income participants.[28]
