What are the GED Tests Like?
The content of the tests are language arts, social studies, science and mathematics. The GED Tests are multiple choice with five possible answers given, with the exception of Part II of the Writing Skills Test, which is an essay. The GED takes about 7 hours to complete.
In addition to the five GED Tests, Illinois residents are required to satisfactorily pass the Constitution Examination. If you have already taken and passed this exam, you will need to provide proof from the school in which you took the exam. If you have not met the requirements for the Constitution Examination, you may take the exam through the Knox County Regional Office of Education free of charge.
