The GED® test is a second chance to put education first.

The GED test is your chance to get the job or career you want. The GED test credential is the only high school equivalency credential recognized in all 50 states. 

At GED Testing Service, we believe that everybody deserves a second chance. Graduates prove their academic skills and knowledge in the basic subject areas of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. About the GED test:
  • People with a high school credential earn $568,000 more in a lifetime than people without a high school credential.
  • The GED test takes a little more than seven hours to complete.
  • More than 18 million people have passed the GED test.

The GED test is administered year-round at more than 3,400 testing centers worldwide. The GED test was created in 1942 as a second-chance opportunity. One decision shouldn't define a lifetime-transform your life with the GED test.
