This article includes an overview of all GED prep sites and testing centers in the Rockville region. To obtain your high school equivalency degree in Maryland, you’ll need to pass the GED exam.
GED testing is available online and at certified test centers.
The GED® is geared towards adults without a high school diploma and gives them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The tests are at a level that compares to that of graduating high school seniors.
There are four separate GED subtests (or modules) in Science, Literacy, Math, and Social Studies.
These subtests may be taken separately. There’s no need to prepare and sit for the entire GED battery in one session.
Until recently, online GED testing was no possibility. You needed to report, in person, to one of Maryland’s official GED test sites. Now, with the arrival of an online GED testing option, that has all changed.

New online GED testing option
To take the four GED subtests, there was, until recently, not an option via the internet. If you wanted to earn your Maryland GED credential, you had to come personally to one of Maryland’s state-designated GED testing facilities.
Now, all of that changed with the introduction of the GED exam in an online format. You’ll need to have a reliable internet connection, and then an online proctor will oversee your activities and check whether you do it all in line with the rules. Check out this page: ‘Online GED test’ for more information.
The GED passing score is 145 on a 100-200 measuring scale. There is no averaging possibility, so the overall minimally required score is 580 points. In Maryland, the GED will set you back just $45 for the entire exam as the state subsidizes GED testing. Testing is therefore only available to state residents. If you want to see if you qualify for the GED exam, check out ‘GED testing requirements in Maryland.’
The GED (General Educational Development) test has drastically reduced the number of multiple-choice questions, and you need to answer the questions more in an essay style.
There are four separate tests that you can take individually in the academic fields of Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts); Math (Mathematical Reasoning); Science; and Social Studies.
Not only has the format changed. The GED is now entirely in line with the Common Core Educational Standards that have been implemented by most states.
The GED is modular, meaning that you now can take, and also pay for, the four tests one by one at the moment you feel sufficiently prepared. You don’t need to sit for the entire GED battery in one take.
All across America, the GED credential is recognized and accepted just like a regular high school diploma by employers, institutions of higher education, and government agencies.
Not having a high school diploma can have many causes, and the GED track offers a great and important way to receive a diploma that can be used in the same way. The GED testing criteria are set in a way that 40 percent of high school graduates would not pass the test.
