MORE ABOUT THE GED

The GED is composed of four subjects that are broken down into separate exams. This allows you to take one exam at a time so that you can space them out and take them at your own pace.

  • Mathematical Reasoning The Mathematical Reasoning section consists of two sections, each with 25 questions. You’re allowed to use an on-screen calculator in the first section. You’re given 115 minutes to complete this section.
  • Reasoning Through Language Arts The Reasoning Through Language Arts section consists of 40 multiple-choice questions. These questions are based on fiction and non-fiction passages. You’re given three sections with one written essay. You’re given 150 minutes to complete this section of the exam.
  • Social Studies The Social Studies section has 50 multiple-choice questions that cover four content areas. This section is timed for 70 minutes.
  • Science The Science section consists of 50 multiple-choice questions to be completed in 90 minutes.

How is the GED Scored?

Each test of the GED is scored on a range of 100 to 200. This means that 145 is a passing score for each area of the exam. A score of 144 is considered a below passing score. A score of 165 is a college ready score while a score of 175 and above is a college ready plus credit score. A college ready plus credit score means that you are eligible for up to 3 credits in math, 3 credits in science, 3 credits in social studies, and 1 credit in English.
