GED Testing

Official GED Test
The GED test given at BCC gives you the opportunity to earn a State of Kansas high school diploma by measuring major academic skills and knowledge in core content areas that are usually learned during four years of high school.
The 8.5 hour test battery measures achievement in four subject areas:

  • Reasoning Through Language Arts
  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Social Studies
  • Science

The General Education Development (GED) tests are administered to approximately 700,000 people each year. One out of seven high school diplomas granted in the United States is based on passing the GED tests. GED Testing is completed in a certified PearsonVUE testing center located at our El Dorado and Andover locations. Each testing session has limited space, so early registration is advised.
