The current version of the GED is totally computer-based. All previously passed sections of the GED test are no longer valid.

The GED exam is no longer offered at Hamden High School, but at several local sites. It consists of tests in the following areas: language arts/writing, language arts/reading, math, science, and social studies.


Any Connecticut resident who does not have a high school diploma, is at least 17 years old and has formally been withdrawn from school for six months or their high school class has graduated, is eligible. Official practice tests need to be taken and you must score "likely to pass".
