Frequently Asked Questions Regarding The GED Tests:          HomePage                

  • How long does the testing take ?
  • The test time is approximately seven hours over two days.
  • Must I write all five tests?
  • The first time you write you must write all five tests over a two day period ( usually over a Friday and Saturday ).  If you require special testing accommodations you should discuss this with ILC , the official government designated test provider. The link is also at the bottom of the page.
  • If I fail one of the tests, can I rewrite just that test ?
  • Yes. Currently, a score of 450 or higher on all five tests means you will receive your GED certificate. If you score less than 450 you may rewrite the test with no waiting period. However, if your score is less than 400 you must wait three months before rewriting. You can only write a test twice in any one calendar year.  
  • Is there a break between tests?  
  • There is a 15 minute break between tests.
