GED Testing

The GED Test passing score is now 145 instead of 150.

On January 1, 2014 the GED Test was replaced with a new computer-based, four module assessment aligned to Common Core Standards. The four modules are:

  • Mathematics (120 minutes)
  • Reasoning through Language Arts (155 minutes)
  • Science (95 minutes)
  • Social Studies (75 minutes)

There is no longer a limit to the number of times an individual may test in a year; however, after three attempts, there is a 60 day waiting period before retesting can occur. Candidates are encouraged to participate in GED preparation classes.

The GED Test is offered 12 months a year at The Lee County Public Education Center
