Approximately 40% of the GED Science Test focuses on life science, 40% on physical science, and 20% on earth and space science. The questions are based on short readings that often include a graph, chart, or figure.

You will need to refer to these visuals often while answering the questions. Usually, 2-3 questions refer to the same visual image. Questions are based on science topics in real-world contexts. Students will not have to recall isolated facts.

You will have eighty-five minutes to answer fifty multiple-choice questions.  Each question has five possible answers, and you must select the best answer.

Keep in mind; the GED Science Test items assess your ability to use thinking skills to respond to questions about science reading passages and graphics.
