Note that a new High School Equivalency (HSE) Test called TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) will replace the GED® Test in the beginning of 2014.
Grandfathering GED® test scores: A candidate may use up to 4 passing GED® sub-tests (score of 410 or above) taken between 2002-2013 to count towards earning a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma. The use of these scores will be allowed for two years (2014 and 2015). Candidates taking TASC for the first time must take all five TASC sub-tests. Each TASC sub-test that the candidate passes will be posted on the candidate’s transcript. If the candidate does not pass the TASC sub-test but passed the same GED® sub-test, the GED® score will be accepted as a passing score. If a candidate has already passed all 5 GED® sub-tests but did not attain the minimum total score of 2250, such candidate must pass at least one of the TASC sub-tests to obtain a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma.
