Changes Coming to the GED Testing Service Website

The GED Testing Service website is getting a new look and a lot more! Late next month GED Testing Service’s two websites ( and will merge under the web address. This new website will hold all the information educators, students and the general public need to know about the GED test program.

In addition to a cleaner, fresher look the new website will have dedicated sections for both educators and students on the same site — instead of having to toggle back and forth between and like they do now. Both educators and students will experience a new and easier to use navigation that will help them find what they need when they need it.

Once you open the new page, educators will be able to access professional development materials without logging into an account. Our full library of classroom resources, webinars, assessment guides and more will be at your fingertips with just the simple click of the “Educators” tab on the homepage. The website will also house detailed information for GED test administrators.

Educators will be able to easily see what the student experience is like by simply exploring the student tab on the homepage. There you can find information about the GED test including cost, FAQs, access to study materials and a link to create a MyGED account to sign-up for the test.

The new GED Testing Service website was created with feedback from you! Throughout the design and test phases we spoke with educators and students from a variety of backgrounds, geographic locations and age groups. This was done to make sure we incorporate what matters to you most—a site that is easier to navigate with all the resources and information you need related to the GED test.

We will be holding a introduction and Q&A webinar shortly after the launch to walk you through the changes and answer any questions you have about content on the site. Those dates will be shared in the next In Session newsletter. We hope that you’re as excited as we are about a new unified


  1. Columbus State Community College uses the old GED testing service link for students to order their GED transcripts. That link no longer works. Is there a new link? How do they order their transcripts now? I don’t see it on this info page.

  2. It’s there is anyway to know when new jersey will accept 145 an set up 150 to pass the ged .I having hard passing just 1 test I always getting 145 ,147 and even 149 and never made it to 150 I know some state already take 145 to pass ged

    1. Keep trying. You are so close!! Everytime you take it, your score improves. You only need 1 more point! Keep studying, take the paractice test until you get 150 and you’ve got this.

  3. It’s there is anyway to know when new jersey will accept 145 an set up of 150 to pass the ged I’m having trouble of passing 1 test I always get 145.148 and even 149 and never made it to to 150
    I know some state already accept 145 to pass

    1. I guess no response means NO…. but that would be a great thing to do. I’ve taken one test three times and made 144 on all three but need a 145 to pass. My adult ed teacher told me that i did scored over 145 but they’re not approving me to pass. Sad part is I’m now paying out if pocket and have taken this subject 6 times.

  4. They need to fix the passing score grade to 140 or at least 141. Because this is my third time taken the math test. And it heartbreaking

  5. Please drop passing score to 140 on the math exam. The test is unfairly difficult even for a college grad. Please

    1. Yes the scores should be changed to 140. I have taken the test and was 1to 2 points off and I’m on my 5th attempt.

    1. I must agree, please drop the score down to 140. I have taken the social studies test five times and the math test twice, with the score being at 140. I will have my diploma.😊

  6. Please lower score to 140. I am 47 years old and this is really difficult for someone my age. And especially difficult for someone who was just learning long division in the 9th grade.

  7. I have taken the math test three times and can’t get a score over 141. You need to drop the passing score to 140 on the math exam. The math test is unfairly difficult.

  8. It’s like no one wants us to succeed… the last time they had the score at 150 I took the test plenty of times and got above 145 they changed it but I didn’t get my money back for those tests that I wasted money on & now I keep getting 2 to 3 point under from 145.. seems rigged no matter what I do. Honestly it’s makes me less and less motivated to even keep going.. now I live in Missouri where I would have to travel two or more hours just to take the ged test and possibly fail, PLUS waste money!

  9. The test score needs to be lowered to 140. There’s so so many people who are struggling to get a 145 on the math test. I have passed every test but the math test. I keep getting a 141. Something needs to be done.

  10. Lowering the score should be considered.
    The math test is frustratingly unfair. There are FOUR different types of the Math tests. I understand you need to switch up the quiz’s for cheating purposes, but at the same time that is terribly confusing when you are told to study the things you failed on your last test, but the week after you’re being dealt with a completely different exam with questions you didn’t see the last time.

    I’ve scored a 144 (amongst a few scores lower previous times) on the math test and ELA after busting my butt all week studying. Changing the score to 140 would be another extreme change, I get it. Also changing the score for just one student complaint isn’t a reasonable negotiation either. However, I see there are many students who are pleading for lower scores due to the high volume of hard work that has to go into taking these tests.

    At least put it into consideration?

    1. Hi Ally,

      We do understand that this may be frustrating and we do encourage you to continue your GED journey. At this time we do not have any plans to lower the passing score for GED test subjects.

  11. I’m going to sue The math test is unfair and the score needs to be lowered. is scamming people and only care about how much money they can make. If they really wanted to help people, they would lower the math test score to 140 and help those who are stuck on the math test.

  12. I’m a lawyer and I’m going to sue The math test is unfair and the test score needs to be lowered to 140. Fix this issue or I’m going to make sure every news station is showing how unfair your test is.

  13. Needs to be lowered to 140. The GED testing service is a joke. All they care about is money, which is why they make nearly impossible for people to pass, they want you to keep paying to retake it. I had my online math test July 2nd. I waited in the queue for and hour and a half, to only be told they couldn’t test me and to reschedule for free. I tried to reschedule, but I’m told I missed my test, NOT TRUE. I was on time, and chatted with a proctor. Now I can’t retest because of this, I’ve studied and studied, it’s so frustrating because I can’t go to college or get a good job without a GED, my quality of life depends on passing this math test. GED couldn’t care less about students. I’ve sent email after email, and called countless times to try and fix this, no one has answered. I have to now spend $1,200 to go to an online accredited school, Cognia through the University of Houston. I am so fed up with GED that I’m willing to pay that much and start all over, just to get a diploma, so I can begin my life.

    Thanks for nothing

  14. Please lower the score to 140 or at least the math section. It is very hard to pass and extremely heartbreaking when you fail. And the fact that you can only retake 3 times a year is even more heartbreaking I was so close but that wasn’t enough. I’m tired of crying on my way back home because the math is that difficult again it’s heartbreaking every time.

  15. Will the Ged scores be lowering down to 140? It makes me heartbreaking every time I failed I already try my best please😭

    1. Hi Yanisa,

      We have no current plans to lower the passing score for the GED test subjects. We do encourage you to keep pursuing your GED!

  16. I feel everyone’s pain, I’ve taken the math test 4 times and can’t get pass 142. The math test is the only test holding me up from receiving my ged, I’ve passed all the other tests. It would do us a great service to have the math score lowered to 140!

    60 and unemployed!!

    1. After four attempts, I can only get a score of 142 on the mathematics test, thus I understand everyone else’s pain. I’m just one math test away from earning my ged, and I’ve already passed all the others. Dropping the math grade to 140 would be a huge help to our cause.

  17. The GED math score definitely needs to be lowered to 140 I study my butt off and I’m tired of retaking this test! First attempt I got 142 second attempt 142 again third attempt 143 it seems you people don’t understand the frustration we are going through, and don’t give me that oh you’re almost there just keep trying you’ll get there. Well I don’t think so since you are the ones taking our money for this specific test the most I want you to tell me that you guys are changing the score for the math because you need to understand that alot of people struggle with this kind of math and can only understand some of it. The score just needs to change only for the math by the end of this year because I’m tired of crying over this stuff. I feel like a failure and that I’ll never be confident enough to do anything at all…

    1. They do not care the system is structured for us to fail. They do not want us all to further our education and better our live and the lives of our families

  18. Please lower the passing score to 140 I’ve taken the social studies test thrice and it’s really frustrating .I’m a person living with disabilities
