You’ve put in the time and effort to studying and preparing yourself to write the GED® tests. You’re ready!

So what should you expect on your test days?

It’s important to know that you are expected to take all five tests the first time you write the GED® tests.

You should arrive 30 minutes before your first test in order to present your identification and to register.

All supplies, such as paper, pencils, pens, and calculator (Casio fx-260) will be provided at the testing session. You will NOT be permitted to use any other materials such as reference books, dictionaries, a slide rule, or your own personal calculator when writing the tests.

A 15-minute break is scheduled between tests. You will also be given a 30-minute lunch break. Additional time is scheduled for giving instructions before each test begins.

Most questions on the GED® tests are multiple choice with five possible answers given. You are required to mark a space in pencil on an answer sheet to show which answer is best for each question. For the Language Arts, Writing test you will be required to write an essay, and for the Mathematics test you will be required to use grids.

What to bring

When you come to write your tests, you must bring any one of following forms of identification to complete your registration:

  • Original photo identification with your signature
  • Your driver’s licence
  • Your photo health card
  • Your passport
