According to the GED Testing Service, as of 2014, test results are available within three hours of taking the computer-based GED. This information is presented for all content areas: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies.
There are two levels of GED scores. A Passing Score indicates at least a high school equivalency. A Passing Score With Honors shows college or career readiness. In addition to the test score, results display the test-takers' strengths and provide feedback on what areas need developing. If a re-test is needed, the testing service offers specific recommendations on how to prepare in order to achieve a higher score.
