The New GED Test
The 2014 edition of the GED exam is really more than only a set of four tests. The new GED program is highly flexible and interactive. You can take the exam in English and Spanish, and you must sit for the exam at an official GED testing center.
The new GED exam was developed from the ground up. The program focuses more on the skills and knowledge needed in modern workplaces and colleges: critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
But there are more benefits: the GED test is now aligned with national and State College- and Career-Readiness Standards, you can see you scores on the same day as testing, and the GED test has become much more flexible.

The GED exam must be taken at an official test center, it is not available online. The nationally available alternatives TASC and HiSET ale also not offered online. If organizations or websites offer the GED test online, or the diploma, they definitely are false. There is just NO online GED testing!
The GED exam examines applicants in these four subject fields: Literacy (reading and writing combined), Math, Science and Social Studies. The TASC and HiSET include five tests because they provide a separate test for writing and one for reading.
