The GED 5th Edition Overview Guide

Scoring To pass the GED you need a minimum score of 410 on every section but you must average a 450 overall to pass the entire exam. For example, if you earn 410s on all five sections, it will not average 450.  You must meet both requirements to pass the exam. Therefore, scoring above the minimum is ideal and necessary to pass.
Your Results Results of your exam may take two to four weeks to post on the designated website. The certificate takes four to eight weeks longer to arrive at the address you enter on your registration form; the certificate will be mailed to you from the State GED Office in Sacramento, California.
