Test-takers can take sections of the GED® test in any order they want to. Candidates can take the test one part at a time, on different days, or all at the same time. However, we do not recommended that testers take all four parts of the test on the same day, as eight hours is a long time to be testing with just four 10-minute breaks.
Each test costs $32 and can be taken separately. The full battery of tests costs $128.
There is a discounted retesting fee for students who do not pass a section of the GED on the first attempt. Students will be allowed two (2) retests per content area at $12 each.
