GED® Testing Service announced revisions to the passing scores, as well as performance levels, for its high school equivalency test, and is making those revisions retroactive to January 1, 2014, when the 2014 GED® Test series was first released. North Carolina will join 32 states in recognizing these changes immediately, possibly resulting in as many as 700 new high school equivalency diploma holders in the state. Other states may require additional approval or rule changes to implement the new recommended revisions.

Those affected by the changes will be contacted by GED® Testing Service via email; however, test takers with questions can log into their account or go to for information, according to Cynthia Worth, High School Equivalency Coordinator at PCC.

The passing score is being revised from 150 per test module to 145. Additionally, GED® is recalibrating its performance levels.

“We are working with our GED® state representative to ensure students and programs get the necessary information to implement this new change,” said Dr. Lisa Chapman, Senior Vice President for Programs in the NC Community College System.
North Carolina’s 58 community colleges have the option of offering three high school equivalency tests: GED®, HiSET®, and TASC®.

For more information on high school equivalency testing opportunities, please visit or contact Cynthia Worth, High School Equivalency Coordinator at Piedmont Community College at or 336-322-2142.
