2014 GED exam – what’s new

Visit GED.com for more information and to sign up for MyGED, a start-to-finish tool for the 2014 GED program. It is flexible, convenient and offers the support you need before and after the GED exam. It was built with you in mind; MyGED helps you take control of your life and your future. The passing score is 150 or higher on each individual part of the exam (on a scale 100 to 200), so you need a score of at least 600 for the entire exam to receive your GED credential (averaging is not allowed). The new tests allow you to receive a GED Honors Diploma if you have a score of 170 or higher for each section, and 720 or up overall.

The “digitalized” GED exam

The future is calling you, and by going for the GED exam you have the chance to answer that call.  Acquiring your GED diploma is the key to opening the door to a college education, a new or better job, and you will earn the respect you really deserve.  Don’t miss out this chance to take this important step on the pathway to all sorts of opportunities in life. Now, for the first time after 70 year of GED history, the test is offered in computer format and this “digitalization” brings you several benefits: registration and scheduling can be done online any time/any day. The 2014 GED examination is a series of four tests where candidates can demonstrate their skills and knowledge in key subject areas: language arts, science, social studies and mathematics. You can now prepare and take tests at your own pace, and score reports are readily available within a few hours after taking the tests.

GED Jobs

For several reasons, many adults have found themselves not in the position to complete high school and obtain their secondary education diploma, and it could be quite a few years before they could be in a position again to complete the requirements. Many of them have found employment that matches their interests and skills, but having a high school diploma is ever more required and beneficial. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that a worker who has a secondary education degree (HS or GED diploma) will earn annually approximately $7,600 more than someone without it. Another reason to get a GED diploma is that it is a necessity if you want to go to college, technical school or university.

The 2014 GED exam – passing score

The new passing score is 150. Averaging is no option so you must reach that score on every test. A score of 170 and up on each test and 720 or higher in total lets you pass “With Honors”. You may also be interested in the best 2014 GED books.

Can I take the GED exam online?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is still NO. There is no such thing as an online GED examination, you still will need to go to an official GED assessment center. If a website claims something else, that site is a scam! Please be aware.

(Not-so-funny) GED-news (Source: Chanel 2 Action News):
June 2014. Four Atlanta city workers were fired after it showed that they had been receiving payment for over a year without working. Investigative reporters learned the workers are as well involved in a scheme to make and use fake GED certificates. Atlanta city officials said that it always takes some time to fire workers because the city must offer workers due process. There is a chance that we never learn just why it took the city so long to take some action against the four workers, but what we do know is that the city was aware of the scheme already in 2013, but never acted until recently. Channel 2 Action News says it began investigating this incomprehensible story after it received several tips that Atlanta city Public Works employees were sent on administrative leave (for several months, and sometimes longer than a year), while keeping their earnings. Reportedly, some other Atlanta city departments were affected too, such as Watershed Management, and Parks & Recreation. The investigation revealed that citywide 21 individuals were on leave with pay, and that seven of these persons were in this position for longer than one year. By the end of May 2014 the total cost to the taxpayers was almost $400,000. What a waste of taxpayers’ dollars. But another important issue was revealed in a 2012 investigation report by Atlanta’s Law Department. It showed that at least five of these long-term leave workers were involved in  scheme with bogus GED’s. The Atlanta city report stated that some public works employees (see Chanel 2 Action News for names) made, sold and distributed fake official documents, including GED diplomas, and that other employees purchased or used these fraudulent documents.
