When can I sign up to take the GED in NY?
You can create an account now and start studying! Beginning in January 2022, you will be able to start testing in NY at a testing center.
If I have a TASC account, will I need to create a GED account?
Yes. GED is not affiliated with TASC, and your login information will not transfer to a GED account. You'll need to create a GED account in order to sign up for the test.
I’ve already taken parts of the TASC in NY. How do I complete my high school equivalency credential with the GED? Will my credits transfer?
Yes, any passing TASC subject test scores will count towards earning your diploma. Please note:  That TASC is a 5-subject test, and GED is a 4-subject test. If you have passed a TASC Writing or Reading, but not both, you will need to take the GED Reasoning Through Language Arts (RLA) subject test. 
Why is NY no longer offering the TASC? How is the GED different?
Data Recognition Corporation, the creator and administrator of the TASC high school equivalency test has decided to retire the test as of December 31, 2021. NYSED has chosen the GED test as New York's high school equivalency test starting in January 2022. The key difference between the TASC and GED are the number of subject tests included. The TASC test contains 5 subjects: Reading, Writing, Science, Mathematics, and Social Studies. The GED test contains 4 subjects: Reasoning Through Language Arts (a combination of reading and writing), Science, Mathematical Reasoning, and Social Studies.
