If I don’t pass, how do I get the voucher for my next test?
If you do not pass your first test subject on computer, you will receive an email with instructions on how to use your free retake. This email will be sent within ten to fourteen business days of your test date to the email account used when you registered and scheduled your test. If you do not see it, please check your spam folder.
What is a GED® test subject?
A GED® test subject includes any of the five test parts: mathematics; language arts, reading; language arts, writing (including essay); science; and social studies.
What happens if I pass each test, but my total score doesn't meet the 2250 or higher passing standard?
The Second Shot promotion is an opportunity for test-takers to earn a voucher for a free retake if they don't pass their first GED test on computer subject test on their first try. To be clear, this is the first subject test they take (whether it is math, social studies, science, etc.). No voucher will be offered for test-takers who pass each subject but fail to reach the overall 2250 score.
Do I have to use the voucher code on the same GED® test subject?
The voucher code should be used toward the cost to retake your GED® test subject.
How do I redeem my voucher code?
To redeem your voucher code, log in to GEDcomputer.com and follow the steps to schedule your test. When you arrive at the payment page, click on the text "Add Discount," enter the voucher code into the box that reads, “Enter Voucher/Promotion code,” and click the text, “apply discount.” The voucher code can only be used toward testing on computer.
How long is my voucher code good for?
Issued voucher codes for this promotion are valid for use through December 31, 2013. Test seating is limited and GED Testing Service is not responsible if there are no seats available at the time a test-taker attempts to redeem the voucher code.
If I sit for multiple test subjects on the same day and don’t pass one of the subjects, am I still eligible for a free voucher?
Yes, if you schedule more than one test subject during your first day of testing and you do not pass at least one subject in that first day, you will qualify for a free voucher.
Can I get a free voucher for test subject that I previously failed on computer?
No, this promotion applies to GED® test subjects taken on computer between February 6, 2013 - November 30th, 2013.
Are international test-takers eligible for this free voucher promotion?
No, this promotion is limited to test-takers in the United States, U.S. territories and insular areas.
What does “Second Shot” mean?
GED Testing Service is giving you the opportunity for a free retake on any GED® test subject. Simply take your test on computer by November 30, 2013, and if you don’t pass your first attempt, your second shot is on us!
Can I receive more than one voucher if I don’t pass more than one test subject?
No, test-takers are only eligible to receive one voucher code good for one test subject retake during the promotional period.
What if my state or area doesn’t offer the GED® test on computer?
