The 2014 GED® test is a four-subject high school equivalency test that measures skills required by high schools and requested by colleges and employers. The four subjects are Science, Social Studies, Mathematical Reasoning, and Reasoning Through Language Arts. After you pass the GED® test, your diploma or credential will be issued by your state but you’ll receive a GED® transcript to apply to college, start training, or get a better job.
The test is part of the 2014 GED® program, the only high school equivalency program built to help adults qualify for college, training, or a good job with good wages.
At GED Testing Service, we believe that everyone deserves a fighting chance at a good job with good wages. That’s why the 2014 GED® program includes start-to-finish support and a test based on what’s needed to succeed in college and jobs.
