New English GED tests became effective January 1, 2002, and partial scores from previous English-language GED tests may not be combined with scores from the 2002 series GED tests. On January 1, 2004, the new series of Spanish- and French-language GED tests were introduced. Partial scores from previous series of tests in those languages may not be combined with the new series.

Here are some features of the GED Tests:

  • In the Science test, candidates are asked to select the best way to set up an experiment, interpret others’ results, analyze experimental flaws, apply scientific conclusions to their personal lives, and use the work of renowned scientists to explain everyday global scientific issues.
  • The GED tests require candidates to apply, analyze, and evaluate the information they know about these subjects by the information provided to answer multiple-choice questions.
