Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is the GED Test?
The GED testing program offers adults who left school an opportunity to earn a high school credential. GED examinees must demonstrate twelfth grade competencies that would have been acquired in a four year high school education. Competencies are demonstrated through a battery of tests covering five major subject areas. These areas are Language Arts, Reading; Science; Mathematics; Social Studies; and Language Arts, Writing. GED testing sessions are offered many times a year.
How much does tutoring cost?
There is no cost for tutoring. It is absolutely free at Albion District Library.
How much does it cost to take a test?
It costs $25 in cash for each of the first four subject area tests. If four tests are passed, the fifth test is free (until 2014). Individuals must bring state photo I.D. with them to each test session. No study aids (such as dictionaries or notes) or cell phones are allowed.
Where and when can I take the test?
Individuals can take the tests at the Miller-Stone Building in Battle Creek. Dates and times are available upon request.
What if I don’t pass a GED test the first time I take it?
The GED Testing Service allows GED test candidates to take each subject area test up to three times in a calendar year. Scores from tests taken since 2002 are valid until December 2013. If a test is repeated, payment is due at the time of retesting.
I started my GED testing, but I have not finished.
Tests taken since 2002 are valid only until December 2013, at which point if you have not completed all five current GED batteries, you will need to retake all tests. In 2014, the GED tests will be completely revised, there will be only four tests (with Reading and Writing combined), and they will be offered only by computer.
Do I get a high school diploma if I pass the GED Test?
No, if you pass all five subject area tests, you receive a General Educational Development Certificate.
