About the GED Test
Paper tests in Georgia were discontinued April 1, 2013. Subject tets passed before January 1, 2014 are no longer valid.
Computer-based tests are available for both new and repeat test-takers. Test takers 18 years and older are not required to provide proof of withdrawal from school.
