GED – Tests of General Educational Development

GED Testing is for adults who left high school without a diploma. The Centre for Employment & Learning offers free GED practice testing. If you need to improve your practice test scores, you can receive free literacy upgrading. Once you have finished upgrading, you can register to write the GED Test.

There are five tests you will write that cover the following subject areas:

  • Language Arts (Writing),
  • Language Arts (Reading),
  • Mathematics,
  • Science,
  • Social Studies.

If you pass the GED Test, you earn an Ontario High School Equivalency Certificate. Having this certificate will help you with future employment, job promotions and enrolment in college or apprenticeship programs.
