What You Should Know About The GED Test Scoring
1. 145 - 164 Scores: Pass / High School Equivalency
2. 165-174 Scores: College Ready
Scores below the level 1 range are not passing scores; 145 is the minimum score you'll need to get in each section to pass!
Scores in the level 2 range demonstrate college readiness, and may make you eligible to skip certain placement tests and remediation programs when you enroll for a university degree.
Scores in the level 3 range are the best because they indicate you've probably already mastered some college level material.
You may be eligible to earn college credits for a level 3 score, depending on the college.
School Seniors GED® Test Average Score Estimated National Class Rank
If you're a little confused on what this means, basically, everyone who graduates from high school will have a class ranking.
The top students will be in the top percentile, while others will be in lower percentiles. For instance, if a student graduates in the top 10% of their high school class, this roughly means that they performed better than 90% of the other students at their high school.
Here's the data:
Note that test scores are shown first on the left, followed by the class ranks on the right.
GED Percentile Rank
Why This Matters
Suppose a student's test scores for the 2014 test are as follows:
Social Studies: 146
Language Arts: 155
When we plug these number into the calculator, we can see that his approximate GPA is a 3.155, which rounds to a 3.2.
According to the class rank estimate data, his score puts him in the Top 46%. A 3.2 GPA falls between a B and and B+ average, and it makes sense that a student of this caliber could be ranked in about the top 46% of their class. Therefore, his estimated GPA makes sense!
