What are requirements for taking and passing the GED test?


To get a GED certificate you must:

Receive a minimum standard score of 410 or more on each of the five GED tests and an overall average standard score of 450 or more in the GED Test. You must also receive a score of “2” on the essay exam.

What is the passing score for the essay in the GED?

A GED Testing candidate must earn a score of 2 or higher on the Language Arts, Writing Test, Part II essay in order to receive a composite score and obtain a passing score.

A candidate needs a score of 2 or higher to earn a passing score. States may set a composite GED passing score (multiple-choice and essay) that is higher than the current minimum GED passing score of 410. The composite GED passing score cannot be set lower than the GED Testing Service standard score.

When I receive my GED Language Arts, Writing Test score, how can I tell if I earned a score of 2 or higher on my essay?

If you received a score on your transcript in the range of 200-800, you would have earned at least a score of 2 (minimum passing score on the 4-point scale) on your essay.

If you received a double (**) asterisk on your transcript, then you did not earn a 2 on your essay.

Note: A single asterisk (*) indicates that you did not write on the assigned topic, and your response was recorded as "off topic."
