How is the test scored? 

There are three scoring levels:

  • GED® Passing Score: In RI, the passing score is 145 or higher.

  • GED® College Ready: Scoring above 165 (on any test subject) means you have demonstrated you are ready to take college level courses and you may qualify for waivers from placement testing or developmental education requirements if you enroll in college.

  • GED® College Ready + Credit: Scoring above 175 (on any test subject) means you have demonstrated skills that could qualify for up to 10 college credit hours.

Your skill level and the amount of time you can devote to the program determine the length of time required to complete the program.
