The passing score for the GED® test is now 145 instead of 150.
What this means for you:
- If you’ve started taking the GED® test – or are thinking about it – this is great news!
You’re more likely than ever to earn your diploma! You now have to score 145 (instead of 150) on each test subject to pass.
- You won’t see your passing status reflected on your score report until March 1.
While this score change is effective immediately, your score report won’t be updated until March 1. Just know that if you earn a 145 or higher on any test subject, you passed!
- If you scored between 145-149 on a GED® test subject in the past, your status has changed from fail to pass.
