About the GED® Tests
The GED Tests provide adults who did not complete a formal high school program the opportunity to certify their attainment of high school-level academic knowledge and skills.
The tests are field-tested and normed on graduating high school seniors before becoming final test forms.
Only 60% of graduating high school seniors would pass the GED Tests on their first attempt.
The GED Test battery comprises five content area assessments:
Language Arts, Reading

The GED Tests are currently offered only in a paper-pencil format at Official GED Testing Centers-they cannot be taken online.
Completing the entire test battery takes just over 7 hours.
