TASC to replace the GED exam in New York State – What you need to know

January 7th, 2014 No comments

A new high school equivalency exam – the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) – will replace the GED in New York State.

The TASC will be similar to the GED but will change in difficulty and format over the next three years.






Important Information – the TASC will:

1) have 5 subject areas – reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies.

2) be primarily multiple choice, with one essay, and some short answer, in 2014.

3) be available in English, Spanish, and Braille.

4) be free in New York State.

5) be offered on paper. At some testing locations, it will also be offered on computer. The percentage of computer testing available will increase each year.

6) Accommodations for various disabilities are available. Approval for accommodations must accompany the application for a test date, so it’s important to apply early for accommodations.


If you took the GED test between 2002 and 2013 and passed any of the 5 subject tests,  your passing scores will count until the end of 2015!
