GED test candidates who live outside of the United States and Canada are allowed to take a computer version of the GED tests. This is a special circumstance in which students can take the GED via computer. A partnership between GEDTS and Prometric allows candidates to take the computerized version of the GED. Prometric is a testing program provider that can ensure accuracy, reliability, and up-to-date results and methods. GEDTS works with Prometric to create an online version of the GED tests that will accurately confirm competency in test-taking candidates. The only computerized version of the test is in English. In order to be eligible for the computer version of the GED students must be at least 17 years old.
The computer-based GED tests will be based on the 2002 GED series and it will be exactly the same as the paper-and-pencil version of the test.
International students must make an appointment to take the GED tests. Students must use a GED identification number when attempting to schedule the test. The GED ID number will be the student’s date of birth (DDMMYY) plus the three-digit country code for the student’s country of residence. Country codes can be located online or by calling official GED testing centers.
