It doesn’t matter when you left school.


Testing takes place at a similar level as what is expected of graduating HS seniors.

Over the years 2014 through 2021, New York offered the TASC exam for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, but this was discontinued by the end of 2021. If you attained passing scores on parts of the TASC exam, don’t worry; these will be lost since they are also good for the GED test!

The GED® (General Education Development) test includes four separate sub-exams in the subject areas of social studies, math, science, and language (writing and reading in 1 test).

The GED exam is entirely computer-based and only given at official New York State testing sites. The state is not offering the GERD exam in an online format yet.

In New York, GED testing is available at no cost to state residents.
