i would also like to let anyone and everyone that wants to know what the percentage of passing the GED and what the perfect score of passing is.
well the percentage is 52%.
There are 5 tests on the GED. 800 is a perfect score on each of the test. You can check how many questions there are on each test and divide that number into 800 to determine how much each question is worth. Let us take reading. There are 40 questions on the test. Each question is right, which is a 420. 21 is about a 52% of 40. You must understand this will not allow you to pass the entire test. In order to obtain your GED you must have a 450 average with no score below 410. The essay is scored a little differently because you have to make at least a 2 on your essay for them to even grade the multiple choice, but the top score is still 800. i hope this helps you understand a little better. GOOD LUCK on passing. An Education is an open door to opportunities.
