TO SHOW CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS, PLEASE DO NOT WEAR COLOGNE OR PERFUME
The GED is a high security test, and we must follow all requirements set by the GED Testing Service. A penalty resulting in suspension from GED testing decided by the GED Administrator will result if any of the following requirements guidelines are violated.
The following is a summary of these REQUIREMENTS:
1.) No talking, whispering, or gesturing is permitted during GED testing.
2.) The following items are not permitted in the GED testing room: Electronic devices, cell phones, watches, bags, pocketbooks, notebooks, books, calculators, pens or pencils. If you have any of these items during a testing session, you will not be allowed to test, and/or your test will not be scored.
3.) All coats, hats, hooded jackets, “do” rags, and gloves must be removed and hung on the coat racks in the testing room. Please dress in warm clothing because the testing room is usually cold.
4.) No food, drink, or chewing gum is allowed in the testing room.
5.) Only those items provided by the GED Examiner are allowed on your desk. Pens, pencils, paper, and calculators will be provided.
6.) Do not write in, or make any marks in the test booklets. Use the answer sheet and scratch paper provided. If a tester is observed writing or marking in an official GED test booklet, all testing materials will be collected, the tester will be excused from testing until the damage is assessed, and the test will be invalidated. Students will be responsible for the cost of test booklet replacement if the test booklet is damaged. (The cost of booklet replacement is $230.00)
7.) There is no bathroom break during testing. If you have to leave the testing room before you finish your test, you will be unable to return to finish that test; we will score the incomplete test.
8.) When you finish your test, remain in your seat, and raise your hand. We will collect your testing materials and allow you to sign out and leave.
9.) If you arrive late for testing, do not enter the GED testing room and do not knock on the door. YOU ARE TOO LATE TO TEST! Call (919) 334-1508 and leave a message for the GED Examiner.
GED testers are provided all materials needed for testing; therefore only those items will be in a student’s possession during testing.
