General Educational Development (GED®)

The Ministry of Education will discontinue the GED® program at the end of 2014. GED® testing sessions will no longer be offered after November, 2014.

Candidates who have not passed all five tests must complete them by November 14 or 15, 2014 if they wish to qualify for the B.C. Secondary School Equivalency certificate.

The General Educational Development (GED®) tests are a set of five multiple choice tests in the areas of reading, writing (with an essay component), social studies, science and mathematics.

Examinees who successfully complete all five tests receive a B.C. Secondary School Equivalency Certificate which is not the same as the diploma awarded to students who complete the graduation requirements of the B.C. Secondary School Program.
