GED Preparation & Testing

GED® is for you if you want to:

Many colleges of applied arts and technology and universities accept satisfactory GED® scores as one factor in their assessment for admission as a mature student. However, the Ministry of Education cannot guarantee that the certificate will be accepted by employers, post-secondary institutions or trainers in every instance.

What to bring on Test Day

When you come to write your tests, you must bring any one of following forms of identification to complete your registration:

GED Calculator Policy:

All GED tests have an onscreen TI-30XS calculator.

Depending on the exam and the test center location, specific calculator models are sometimes permitted. In these situations, the candidate can bring a personal calculator or request a test center calculator (if the exact model is available).

The Casio fx-260 and TI-30XS models are the only approved handheld calculators in Canada.

Standard Passing Score:

You are required to score 450 on each test subject in order to pass and earn your GED® credential in Canada.
