Who Can Take the GED®Test?

Do all sections of the test have to taken at one time?
In Virginia, you can take the individual subjects one at a time. The exam consists of four tests (reasoning through language arts, science, social studies, and math). Most individuals are given the GED tests over a two-day period, testing 4 hours each day.
Is identification required what you come to test?
Your identity must be verified by showing a valid driver's license, learner's permit, passport, or other form of official government ID. The ID must show your picture and include your name, address, date of birth, ID number and signature.
What happens if I don't pass the first time?
The passing score is 150 per subject. You must re-test in only those subjects you did not successfully pass.
Can I take the test again if I don't pass on the first attempt?
Yes, you may take each test subject up to three times per calendar year (January to December). There is no waiting requirement between test sessions.
How soon after taking the tests will I receive my scores?
Test results are available via the Internet within several days after you test.
