GED Score Change FAQs

The passing score for GED test is now 145 instead of 150.  What this means for you:

  • If you’ve started taking the GED test – or are thinking about it this is great news!
    You’re more likely than ever to earn your diploma!  You now have to score 145 (instead of 150) on each test subject to pass.
  • You won’t see your passing status reflected on your score report until March 1.
    While this score change is effective immediately, your score report won’t be updated until March 1.  Just know that if you earn a 145 or higher on any test subject, you passed!
  • If you scored between 145-149 on a GED test subject in the past, your status has changed from fail to pass.
    Check your email (be sure to check your spam folder too) for a message from MyGED.
  • A few states, including Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina and California are still in the process of adopting this change.
    If you are testing in one of these states that hasn’t yet adopted this change, don’t worry.  Simply continue testing as you normally would.  This change has to go through a formal approval process that will take some extra time.
