 Author Topic Slag Posted - 27 July 2006 17:47  So heres the situation, i need a certain score on my ged to get into the university i want to go to. They require a 410 or higher on all sections, and a overall average of 580 or higher.So heres the lucky part, the place that i'm doing my testing requires a 410 to pass each section.So heres the question, naturally if i score 410 on all 5 sections, will my score actually turn out to be a average of 580? i just did some math on it, and preety much only way to get a average of 580 is to score 580 on all 5 sections.is this right? if not, what must i do to achieve the requirment that the university wants? Georgene Posted - 27 July 2006 21:4  So you need to average 580 on each of the five GED tests. This means that you need at least 2900 points.

If you only score a 410 on each test you will have 2050 points, and you will fall short of what you need.

In order to achieve the requirement that the university wants you will need to score above average on each test.

I would suggest that you purchase a good GED book that contains study material as well as practice tests, along with answers and explanations.

Good luck!

when i did the practice test for math, i only missed 1 problem, realisticly for the ged test, what kinda score would that achieve?

preety much i'm just asking how much room do i have for mistakes before i miss too many to get 580? Georgene Posted - 28 July 2006 16:10  A half lengeth "official GED" math predictor test is 25 questions. When looking at form PB, a student can get 4 wrong and still get a predictor score of 580. On form PA a student can get 3 wrong and score a 550.

Each of the test questions is "weighted" differently which is why the test results are slightly different when looking at the results of the two forms.

My best guess on a math test would be that you would need to score at least 44 correct out of 50... perhaps even 45 correct problems.

When looking at the conversion charts of the other areas, they are all pretty simular, missing only around 4-5 questions on each.

Hope this helps.
