  3. Has the GED test changed since the Kaplan issue of the GED book came out in 2016 ? Or do I need to try and sell that and my other GED book and get a newer one? I’m a single mother so dealing with my daughters disabilities has been more important I’ve put mine and my health on hold along with getting my ged thanks in advance

    1. Hi Selina,

      The GED test has not significantly changed since it’s release in 2014. We did remove the short answer responses from the Science test in 2018.

  4. Hello GED Administrators:

    I second the motion to lower the score to 140; however, the state I request this change for is Texas. Often I will have 2 or 3 persons earn a 142, 143, even a 144, and due to the fact that they have not reached the goal of 145, they are unable to graduate with their group. They may become discouraged or lose the enthusiasm necessary to continue their education. In my opinion, 70% correct is ample to demonstrate a firm grasp of high school level academics.

    1. Hey, let’s lower it to 104 . . . that way most of the takers will feel good about themselves and we can get more people to pay to take it!
