  • To earn a State of Florida High School Diploma you must:
    • Earn a standard score of at least 410 on each of the five GED® subtests,AND
    • Earn an overall score of 2250 or higher.
  • Candidates who pass the test are given a State of Florida High School Diploma and an Official Transcript that lists GED® test scores. Scores are typically available within 6-8 weeks after the test date.
  • If the candidate fails to earn scores high enough to receive a diploma, he/she can retake all or selected subject area tests to achieve passing scores. Testing centers may require candidates who fail the test to enroll in preparation classes or wait a pre-determined amount of time before attempting to re-test. Candidates may test a maximum of three times on a given test in a single year.
