What is the GED® Exam?
As of January 1, 2022, New York State began using the GED® Exam to measure high school equivalency and college and career readiness.

The GED® test is made up of 4 subjects, broken into separate exams. You don’t have to take all 4 tests at once - you can space them out however it suits you and go at your own pace. To pass the GED® Exam, examinees must demonstrate a level of achievement similar to that of typical high school seniors.
(For 7 years, NYS used the TASC™ Test, which stands for Test Assessing Secondary Completion.)
