Virginia allows people as young as 16 years old who meet qualification guidelines to take the GED test.
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). Because of time constraints, you can take no more than two tests in a day.
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.
The passing score is 145 for each subject. You may re-test in only those subjects you did not successfully pass.
Yes, you may take each subject test up to three times per calendar year (January to December). There is no waiting requirement between the first three test sessions. After the third attempt, test-takers must wait 60-days after their last attempt before they can test again. This will result in test-takers having up to eight opportunities to test in a year, should they require that many attempts.
Test results are available via the Internet within several days after you test.
Adult Education classes are taught by trained instructors. Classes are free and available in the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski and the city of Radford.
You must score 145 or higher per test subject to pass and qualify for a Virginia GED certificate.
$30 per test subject. A discount or scholarship may be available for eligible students.
