Texas GED Test Overview

Texas GEDThe General Educational Development (GED) Exams are a collection of exams designed to determine whether a student has the academic abilities of a standard high school graduate. The GED Examinations are always given out in person at one of the testing facilities in Texas (see list of TX GED testing locations at bottom of page).   Individuals who have not acquired a high school diploma are candidates for the Texas GED examinations. 

The GED Exam scores are benchmarked against the many graduating high school seniors.   At present, the passing rating on the GED examinations are equal to what the top 60 % of high school graduating seniors would earn.  The GED credential is issued by Texas for students dwelling in Texas.  The GED credential is sometimes considered to be equal to a TX high school diploma.
