GED Practice Tests - Try free sample tests in all GED subjects.


The GED test is divided into four sections: English, Math, Social Studies and Science. You can take them one at a time or all at once – whatever your preference. Test dates are generally available every few weeks, giving you time to study until you feel ready. We highly recommend the free classes to help you prepare!

Location: GED testing is held in room A-144a on SIC’s Harrisburg campus: 3575 College Rd. 

Cost: The testing fee is $30 per module ($120 total). Fees may be paid online by debit, credit card or voucher purchased from the Regional Office of Education. Testing fees do not include the cost of the Illinois High School Equivalence Certificate ($10)/ Official Transcript ($3).
