It's probably a little different in each state - but I am in Georgia, and when I took it, there were 5 sections, Math (mostly basic operations, some algebra & geometry), Science (questions based on information given), Social Studies (questions based on information given), Reading (read selections and answer questions about them) and Writing (1 essay, on a topic that is assigned to you - they are looking for correct essay form and grammar. Not sure if spelling is a factor). My essay topic was "Many people collect things. If you were to collect something, what would it be and why?". I took the entire test in one day, each section is approximately an hour, with the exception of the writing portion I believe. The sections other than writing averaged between 50 - 75 questions each if memory serves. Your testing center probably offers GED Prep classes, often for free, I'd definitely look into those if I were you since you haven't seen most of the high school curriculum before. Congratulations on moving forward with your education! Regarding the answer below that talks about people being embarrassed or looked down upon for getting their GED - in my exp. nothing could be further from the truth. I am always given encouragement and praise for going back to get my GED - and in my case, I started college right afterward, and once you set foot in the door of a college, it doesn't matter (to an employer) how you got there - Diploma or GED.

I took my g.e.d test January 26th, I also didn't finish 10th grade haha , but I took 10wks of classes - which didn't even help much .. There is 5 parts to the ged test ,each containing 50 multiple choice questions. The parts are: - Language Arts - Writing , Social Studies , Science , Language Arts - Reading , and Mathematics .. In each part , you need at least a 410 to pass & total 2250 minimum over all score . I was told the test was so easy! & pretty much everybody passed it , I didn't do much studying and I passed everything except science ..& I got a 380 in Science* I was surprised that I only failed one part because I guessed in every part except Language arts -Reading & Writing ...... So its EEAASSYYY ! ALSO , if you only fail one part , you only have to retake that one part - you don't have to retake the whole test . goodluck <33

I don't know how old you are and this may sound cliche', but if you still have the opportunity to get your high school diploma, go for it. I know a few people who took it, and from what I hear, it isn't considered a valid accomplishment although it is equivalent to a high school diploma. Some even consider it an embarrassment as they grow older and find that some employers frown on it. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are people who benefit from having it. As for the people that I know, they wish they had completed high school. I know that you didn't ask for this type of answer but I thought that I could convince you to consider the importance of a high school diploma. If you are still of high school age that is. Wish you all the best!

It's a crap shoot. My husband lost his job at the end of February. He had three offers and got a new job by the middle of March. Now, nearly 4 months later, some of the places he applied to are just now calling him for the first time. So some called right away, others waited ages.
