It doesn’t matter when you left school.

New York State offered the TASC exam in the past years, but that exam was not continued. If you already passed portions of the TASC exam, you can transfer your scores to the GED exam!

The GED (General Education Development) exam comes with four independent sub-exams that cover the academic fields of Math, Science, Language Arts (Reading & Writing in 1 sub-exam), and Social Studies.

New York State takes up the tab for GED testing, so the exam is, understandably, only open to state residents.

The GED exam is a fully computerized assessment that must be taken at designated New York high school equivalency testing sites. Online testing is not (yet) available in the state.

GED Essay Topic and Sample

Is the NY GED exam free?

Yes. For New York State residents, the GED exam is free. While most states let test-takers pay for the exam, New York State foots the bill for its residents, as state laws require the state to pay for high school equivalency testing. Three more states offer the High School Equivalency Exam at no charge while several states partially subsidize GED testing.
