Exam Description: Additional InformationRegister for this exam

This practice exam is designed to help prepare you for the 2014 GED® Exam. The new exam operates as both a high school equivalency benchmark and as a springboard into furthering your education. Instead of being broken in to five parts as the previous exam did, the new GED® exam consists of four parts which includes:
  • Literacy (Reading and Writing)
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • and Social Studies
All tests will be computer-based and more challenging than previous versions. The GED® test will be about 7 ¼ hours long with the timing as follows:
  • Reasoning through Language Arts is 150 minutes (including a 10-minute break)
  • Mathematical Reasoning is 90 minutes
  • Science is 90 minutes
  • Social Studies is 90 minutes
The GED® test will have a passing score of 150 for each subject. Therefore, students will need to reach a score of at least 150 on each subject and a total score of 600 or higher across the four-subject tests in order to receive the GED® test credential. Students may also earn an “Honors” score if they receive a score of 170 or higher on any subject. Below is a list of the full score scale:
  • Below Passing: 100 – 149
  • Passing Score: 150 – 169
  • Honors Passing Score: 170 – 200
Our site provides two free practice exams for the GED®. This is the second exam. Feel free to take our other practice GED® exam as well for additional help.
