GENERAL GED® TESTING INFORMATION

Visit GED.com for information and to register for the current GED® test.

  • There are four GED® test modules: Reasoning through Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Mathematical Reasoning. A passing score for each module is 145.
     
  • A Maryland High School Diploma is awarded to those passing all four modules of the GED® tests.
     
  • Maryland subsidizes the cost of initial GED® testing for each module. See Test Information for Maryland’s GED® testing fee structure.
     
  • Testers are limited to a total of three tests per module per calendar year. If additional retests are needed, the tester must wait until January 1 of the next year to schedule retest(s).
     
  • The GED® test modules can only be taken at approved Testing Centers; the public Testing Centers are located throughout Maryland. See the Test Center Locator.
     
  • The GED® test is available only on computer; test scores from prior test series cannot be combined with scores received in January 2014 or after.
     
  • Currently enrolled students are not permitted to take the GED® test. Maryland’s Compulsory Attendance Law states that students may not withdraw from school before the age of 18.
     
  • Homeless youth may contact the GED® Office at 410-767-0538 for registration information.
