Retaking the GED® Test

You can take a subject area test three times with no restrictions between retakes. After the third testing attempt, the test taker must wait 60 days for each successive attempt.

The cost to retake the test is the same as the cost of the initial test, USD $60 per subject and USD $240 for all four subjects.

In order to test again in a subject you've passed, you must complete an approval process. To request approval you will need to email a brief description of why you wish to test again to If your request is approved, you will receive an email. That email will include instructions on how to schedule additional tests.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact or Asia Pacific (APAC) Region +85-2-3077-4923, Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) Region (toll) +44 (0) 161-855-7440. Please note that approvals will only be made for a maximum of 2 retests per year (during any 12 month period). Retesting wait period may apply between the first and second retest attempt.
