Paper testing is only available as an accommodation.

What are accommodations?

The purpose of accommodations is to provide candidates with full access to the GED® test. However, accommodations are not a guarantee of improved performance or test completion. GED Testing Service provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations to individuals with documented disabilities who demonstrate a need for accommodations. GED® test accommodations may include things such as:

• An audio version of the test

• A separate testing room

• Extra testing time

• Extra breaks

• Presentation of the material in large print

Test accommodations are individualized and considered on a case-by-case basis. Consequently, no single type of accommodation (e.g. extra time) would necessarily be appropriate for all individuals with disabilities. Simply demonstrating that an individual meets diagnostic criteria for a particular disorder does not mean that the person is automatically entitled to accommodations.

How does my discounted retake work?

· For every GED® test subject you purchase but don’t pass, you’ll receive one discounted retake.

· GED Testing Service waives its testing fee

· If you test and use the one-time discounted retake, you will have to purchase the test at the regular price to test again.

· Schedule your discounted retake through your MyGED™ account. Your discount is automatically applied – no code needed.

. When you start scheduling, you’ll see the non-discounted test price

. Once you select your test, test time, and testing center, the checkout screen will show your discounted price

· You must schedule your discounted retakes one at a time for the discount to apply during check-out.

When can I schedule my retake?

· Discounted retakes are good for 12 months after your first attempt

· In Utah, you can test three times on the same subject without waiting. After the third attempt, you must wait 60 days before testing again.
