The General Educational Development (GED)

The General Educational Development testing program allows adults who have not finished high school to show that they have acquired the knowledge and skills associated with, and comparable to, high school completion. Successful GED candidates earn the Ontario High School Equivalency Certificate.

The GED tests cover five subject areas: writing, reading, mathematics, social studies, and science. The GED tests are administered by the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities. The testing is 7.5 hours in duration and is administered over two days.
