The Kansas Board of Regents oversees and regulates the Kansas GED (General Educational Development) program. This program allows adults to earn a credential that is equivalent to a high school diploma. The GED credential will allow them to apply for jobs and educational opportunities that necessitate a high school diploma. If you did not complete high school, here is information on how to obtain a Kansas GED diploma.
You must learn for the Kansas GED exam, just like you did in high school if you do want to pass it, particularly if you've not been in school for a long time. The best method to study will be determined by your learning style and preferences. If you are self-motivated and disciplined, you can take our GED practice tests, and study guides then review the materials on your own time. Those who require the structure of a classroom can enroll in a GED preparatory course, which will lead you through all of the material that would be on the test. There are also a lot of internet resources available to help you prepare for the exam.

The Kansas GED test is designed to verify that applicants have achieved a level of education comparable to that of current high school seniors. There are 240 multiple-choice questions and 1 essay question on 5 subjects: writing, reading, social studies, math, and science.
Except for a portion of the language arts writing test, the exam is scored automatically by a computer. This section requiring you to write an essay will be graded manually. The test takes slightly more than 7 hours to finish, but the Kansas GED testing center may allow applicants to test over several days.
Each exam is worth between 200 and 800 points. The GED test is worth 4,000 points in total. To pass, you must receive at least 2,250 points. Individual test scores cannot be less than 420 points; otherwise, the test is graded as failing and you must retake it. You may only take the exam 3 times per calendar year. If you still fail the exam after those attempts, you will have to wait until the next year to try again.
