Passing the General Educational Development Test (GED) qualifies candidates to receive a State of Florida High School Diploma. The maximum testing time for the complete examination is approximately 7½ hours. Special editions and accommodations may be requested as needed.

Language Arts/Writing – 120 minutes
Science – 80 minutes
Social Studies -70 minutes
Language Arts/Reading – 65 minutes
Mathematics – 90 minutes
A total of 2250 points with a minimum standard score of 410 on each section of the test is required to pass the GED.
GED - Due to statewide changes, the current GED test will no longer be offered after 12/13. Students who did not finish the test in 2013 must retake the entire five-part exam through the new computer-based test. If you have not completed the entire exam, Lake Tech’s test-prep classes can help you prepare so that you can earn your GED before the deadline.
