NOTE:  A new GED test series is expected to begin in 2014.  Therefore anyone who has not yet passed the entire current test by December 31, 2013 will need to start the entire test battery over in 2014 in order to try to earn the GED credential.

Before you begin the GED on test day, you must...
  1. Provide documentation that proves you are an Oklahoma resident (an Oklahoma driver's license, bill, envelope with postage cancelled, or paycheck stub with your address on it).
  2. Provide valid government-issued photo ID (driver's license, state ID, valid passport, military ID, tribal ID, or other forms of government-issued identification that shows name, address, date of birth, signature,and photo).  Photo ID cannot be expired and/or must have been issued within the last two years.
  3. If you require any accommodation(s), you must provide documentation.  Requesting accommodations should be done at least 30-60 days in advance of the test date. Testing accommodations are available for candidates with documented disabilities who demonstrate a need for accommodations.  See this link regarding GED Testing Accommodations:  GED Testing ACCOMMODATIONS
  4. If you have taken GED test components in a state other than Oklahoma, please plan to bring an official copy of the GED transcript to your testing appointment.
  5. If you are age 16 or 17, you will need an additional form called the CONSENT AND RELEASE FORM FOR 16 AND 17 YEAR- OLD STUDENTS. It must be signed by an administrator from the school district in which you live and by a parent. It informs the State that you are not enrolled in the public school system. The completed form and signatures must be notarized.  (A GED recipient’s high school class must have graduated to be eligible for higher education admission. The institution's president or the president’s designee may allow exceptions on an individual student basis.)  The form can be accessed at the link below:

Advantages to CBT testing:
  • More convenient with a wide variety of testing dates available.
  • Instant score results on all but the Language Arts Writing component.
SCORING: You must score a minimum total of 2250 (an average of 450 on all five subtests) to pass. A minimum score of 410 is required on each subtest. For example, if you score 400 on the math but have a total of 2260, you have not yet completely passed the GED exam. When you completely pass, you will receive a certificate that says "High School Diploma."

POLICY FOR RE-TESTING:
  1. Re-testing shall be permitted on the entire battery or on certain test(s). For computer- based tests in the English language, each candidate may test up to six times in each test section during a contract year.

  2. GED graduates who have earned a high school equivalency diploma or earned scores sufficient to qualify for a high school equivalency credential but who need to earn higher GED test scores to meet an admission requirement for postsecondary education or training or to meet employment requirements are eligible to retake the GED Tests.
  3. GED graduates who have earned a credential based on passing the French- or Spanish-language edition of the tests and need to pass the English-language version to qualify for employment or postsecondary education or training are also eligible to retake the GED Tests.
