What are the costs of the GED test?The GED test is now administered in four sections: Math, Social Studies, Science, and Reading/Language Arts. Each section costs $30 and must be completed at an official GED Testing Center. At various times, the GED is offered for free. Contact your center for more information.
How many sections are there on the GED TEST and do I have to pass all of the GED test sections at once? There are four sections to the GED TEST (Math, Language, Social Studies, Science). You can focus on taking and passing one section at a time. However, you must eventually pass all four sections.
What happens if I don’t pass a section of the GED test?In Kentucky, you may retake each section of the GED Test up to two times at a reduced cost of $10 for each retake. In the event that additional retakes are needed, a 60-day waiting period would apply.
Do I have to be here a certain amount of time before I can take the GED test?No! As you prepare and are equipped to take one of the four sections of the GED Test, you will take the GED Ready Test in that section. The GED Ready Test is a half-length GED Test that serves to predict your outcome on the full-length test. You do not have to go to a special site to take a ready test.

I have a high school diploma but I feel like I need to improve my skills. Can you help me?Yes, we can assist you in the areas of reading, math and writing. Please contact your county's center for more details.
What do I need to enroll?If you are 19 or older, you don’t need to bring anything. If you are 18, you need a copy of your withdrawal paper from your last school. This withdrawal form is necessary because you have to turn a copy in when you take the GED test. Enrolling involves gathering information, talking with you about your needs, and beginning the process of determining where instruction is needed.

Can I go to college with a GED?Yes, the GED credential is widely recognized by colleges, training schools and employers as equivalent to a high school diploma.
How long will it take me to get my GED?That depends on your skill level and commitment to study/instruction. If you have strong reading and math skills, it should not take you long to be ready to take the test. If you have areas in reading or math to go over, then it will take you a bit longer. If you are committed to meet with your instructor(s) on a regular basis, (at least weekly or better yet, twice a week) you should move through the process in a timely manner.
