I took the G.E.D. test back in 1998 and was wondering what my scores mean. I did not do very well in math, however I did pass the test. My total was a 230 and my official report of test results was stamped as passed. Looking at the new standard scores for the test, I am now wondering if I will be required to take the test over? Or will the scores be converted. Help Please!!!

Hi Rachel,

   It wouldn't say you passed if you didn't pass. Once you pass the GED test, you have your GED. It doesn't matter when you took the test. I graduated high school in 2005, and my parents graduated in the 70's. I'm sure we studied different things while we were in school but we still have our high school diplomas.

   If you want to get an idea of what your scores would be like on the latest version of the test, you can just add a 0 to the end of your scores. So that would make your total score something like 2300, which would be an average of 460. That is definitely a passing score. Just keep in mind the test you took was a different test, so this isn't official; it's just in case you're curious.

I hope that helps, Rachel!
