Results, Passing Standard and Retesting
You will receive your results approximately three weeks after the last day of the testing for that month. In the meantime, please do not call the Connecticut GED Office for your scores because test scores cannot be given over the phone. If you pass, you will automatically receive your State High School Diploma along with your scores.
In order to pass the 2002 Series GED Tests and receive a Connecticut State High School Diploma, your total score must equal at least 2250 and the best score in each of the five subject area tests must be at least 410. If your total score is at least 3000 and the best score in each of the five subject area tests is at least 550, then you will be awarded an honors diploma. No matter how many times a person retakes the GED Tests, only the best score from each subject area test is used to determine the highest score for that subject and the total score for the entire GED exam.
Please note: Scores from GED Tests taken prior to January 2002 cannot be combined with the 2002 Series GED Tests.
