It doesn’t matter when you left school.


From 2014 through 2021, the state used the TASC exam for this purpose, but that program was discontinued. Your TASC scores also count towards your GED!

There are four GED® subtests that assess proficiency in Science, Language Reading, Language Writing, Math, and Social Studies.

The GED (General Education Development) exam measures knowledge at a level comparable to that of graduating HS students.

In New York State, the exam is available at certified test centers (not yet online). To qualify for taking the test online (when that becomes available), candidates need to attain “green” scores (in the likely to pass range) on the GED Ready® practice test available at GED.com. There are four GED Ready tests, one for each subject field.

The GED exam is exclusively available in a computerized format. Paper-based testing is something of the past. That’s not surprising since there are hardly any jobs out there that do not require at least basic keyboarding skills.
