The test is for adults who couldn’t finish high school and offers the chance to acquire an equivalent degree.

The GED® exam measures knowledge at a level similar to that of graduating high school students.

There are four individual GED modules (independent subtests) in

  • Science
  • Math
  • English Language
  • Social Studies

These four modules can be written separately (if you wish, one at a time), and in any desired order.

Testing takes place at a level similar to what HS seniors must command upon graduation.

Until recently, there was no GED testing option over the Internet. Testing had to be done at state-approved Maryland GED testing centers, but that has now changed with the arrival of a new online testing option. Learn more below.

GED Online Testing Option

It used to be that sitting for the four GED modules over the Internet was no option. You were required to show up personally at one of Maryland’s state-designated GED testing centers if you wished to acquire your Maryland GED degree.

Fortunately, that has now changed. You now also have the option to take the GED exam in an online format where a proctor will oversee your testing efforts and check if everything goes in line with the rules and regulations. Visit ‘Introducing the online GED exam’ to learn all about it.

GED Scoring

The GED test has a scoring system that requires you to score at least 145 on each subtest (module). Averaging is not an option, so you will need to score at least 580 points on the entire GED battery.

The score is measured on a scale that goes from 100 to 200. The passing score is 145-164 (high school equivalency); the college-ready score is 165-174; the college-ready + credit score is 175-200. To see if you are eligible for the fully computerized GED exam, go to GED testing in Maryland.

Qualification Criteria

In Maryland, you must be at least 18 years of age, not already hold a secondary degree, not be enrolled in another school program, and you are required to bring proper identification. Younger students (16 or 17) may also take the tests, but they must meet specific criteria.

They must have a withdrawal declaration from their former school and be able to present an employer’s confirmation that they need a GED for a certain job or a statement from an institute of higher education declaring that they need a GED or a letter from a U.S. Armed Services branch that states that they need their GED for induction. For details, please contact a GED testing site near you.

The GED test is fully computer-based and recognized and accepted in the same way as a common high school degree by virtually all colleges, military services, and employers.

The GED diploma is the equivalency of a Maryland high school diploma. The GED exam contains four separate subtests that assess academic knowledge and skills at a level that compares to that of high school grads.

GED cost

Maryland subsidizes GED testing, but only for first-time testers. For first-time applicants, each of the four GED sub-exams costs $14.25 in Maryland, so $57 for the entire GED battery. For all other test-takers, the regular fee is $144 or $36 per module. So, the state of Maryland subsidizes $21.75 for each GED sub-exam, but this applies only to first-time test-takers and for their first attempt at each GED subtest. This applies to both online and on-site testing.

In Maryland, retests are not subsidized. If you want to benefit from this offer, use the discount code MDGED2175 upon checkout when paying for a subtest. To register for the GED subtests (one at a time if preferred), you must create an account at GED.com.
