GED® Information

The GED® test is a computer-based test, comprised of four subtests:

  • Reasoning through Language Arts (150 minutes)

  • Mathematical Reasoning (115 minutes)

  • Science (90 minutes)

  • Social Studies (70 minutes)

You will not have time to take all four GED® tests on one day – PSA Counselors recommend only taking one or two subsets of the GED® per day.

Test takers should be familiar with a computer keyboard and have basic computer skills, such as using a pull-down menu, cutting and pasting, highlighting and dropping text. The test is scored quickly, with results typically available in three hours or less! We have GED-approved calculators to loan, or you can bring your own (Texas Instruments TI-30XS).

The GED® is also offered in Spanish. Please use the link for more information: GED Testing Services – Spanish.
