The GED test was built from the ground up to provide students a test that measures the skills they need to succeed. The test focuses on the foundational knowledge and skills needed for college and career readiness; colleges and employers can be confident that students who pass the GED test have the skills to excel on the job or in the classroom. Accommodations are free of charge, such as extra time and a paper test option. Pay-as-you-go pricing allows students to pay for each test subject as they take it in order to spread out the cost of the entire test.
