For information about signing up for the test, please see our GED requirements overview.

When preparing for your upcoming exam, it is important to consider how you will be taking your exam.

In the past, you were only able to take your GED exam at an in-person testing center. However, now you can take your exam online or in-person.

If you will be taking the exam online, it may be best to practice taking the exam in an online environment.

Make sure you are using an online calculator and not using scrap pieces of paper when preparing for your exam – you will not be able to use a physical calculator or scrap pieces of paper if taking the GED exam online.
