What to Expect on Test Day

The testing center will provide you with the Casio FX260 handheld calculator on part of the GED® Mathematics Test.

You will be given an erasable note board and marker to take into the testing room. You can also bring a physical calculator - the Casio FX260 model to the test center on test day.

You will need to check with your jurisdiction for specific requirements in terms of what to bring to the testing center. Cell phones are strictly forbidden in the testing room.

TIP: Make sure you know where the testing center is and arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled GED® test appointment. You will need to check in when you get there. If you arrive more than 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment time, you may not be admitted and may lose your test fee.

When you schedule more than one subject in the same day, you will automatically be given a ten-minute break in between tests. Unscheduled breaks are not allowed and your test will not be scored if you leave the room during an unscheduled break. During scheduled breaks and lunches, you may access your personal items. If you need to leave the room, have questions about the test, or are experiencing problems with your computer, raise your hand and notify the test administrator.
