GED Science Exam

Everything you need to know!

The GED Science test evaluates your ability to understand, interpret, and apply scientific information. You will have 90 minutes to answer 34 questions that are based on reading passages, graphics such as diagrams, tables, graphs, and maps, or a combination of the two. You will need a minimum score of 150 to pass the GED Science Test.

You will work with six question formats on the Science Test. Many of the questions will be in the familiar multiple-choice format, but you will need to be acquainted with the other formats as well including fill-in-the-blank, drop-down, hot-spots, drag-and-drop and short-answers.

The GED Science Test contains two Short-Answer questions (each worth 3 points!) based on one passage, two passages, a graphic, or a combination. You will write your answer in a text box. Read the prompt carefully and use the online highlighter to target specific facts and information that you will use in your response. Your answer must be about one or two paragraphs long, with complete sentences and well-developed ideas. An effective response must answer the questions and use specific information from the source materials. It should not be based on your opinions or personal experiences.

Life Science topics account for 40% of the questions on the GED Science test. These biology-based topics include human body systems, cell structures and processes, health and nutrition, heredity and reproduction, genetics and DNA, evolution and natural selection, and the organization of ecosystems.

Physical Science topics account for 40% of the questions on the GED Science test. These physics and chemistry-based topics include atoms and molecules, properties and states of matter, chemical reactions, energy and work, motion and forces, waves, electriCity, and magnetism.

Earth and Space Science topics account for 20% of the questions on the GED Science test. These geology/astrophysics-based topics include the structure of Earth, plate tectonics, geological cycles and processes, renewable and nonrenewable natural resources, weather and climate, the solar system, and the universe.

"Dr. Donnelly's way of teaching is very calm and effective. By teaching math in the simplest ways possible he managed to make it interesting and challenging at the same time. I am happy to report that I recently passed my TASC exam with a score of 90 percent."

"Dr. Donnelly is a wonderful teacher. He is quick to pinpoint weaknesses and, in many cases, turn them into strengths. He always has a structured lesson plan and pertinent homework assignments and puts aside time in the lesson to go over "trouble problems" from the previous lesson. I highly recommend taking a prep course with him. His patience, humor, and kindheartedness makes an otherwise uncomfortable standardized test almost enjoyable."

Mia P., Manhattan, New York.

"The fundamentals I learned from Dr. Donnelly were very helpful. I received the one-on-one attention that I did not receive in the Kaplan prep test. I did not feel embarrassed to ask basic questions. Dr. Donnelly was very patient with explaining concepts in detail until I understood. Additionally, he was always available via email or phone."

"Dr. Donnelly's rates are very reasonable, his location convenient and he was able to accommodate my varied schedule. After a handful of sessions in which he patiently worked with me to target the specific areas I could improve in given the limited time, I was able to reach the needed score to start college in September, thanks to Dr. Donnelly."

"My daughter has worked with Dr Donnelly for the last three months and it has been wonderful. Dr. Donnelly has been able to focus on her weaknesses and provide enormous insight. In addition, his advice with regards to strategy for the test has been invaluable. He is able to engage students and provide support well beyond other tutoring services. He is sincerely committed to student success and offers a personalized service with sound methodology. Within 3 months her scores improved significantly. In addition to all his talents ... he is just one of those really smart people that can teach."

5 star review

"Dr. Donnelly's private tutoring stands apart from other mainstream/commercial review programs because he isolates an individual's weaknesses and tailors a successful review and test-taking strategy that conforms to an individual's needs -- rather than those of the masses. Dr. Donnelly was able to quickly understand and dissect my thought process in order to help me break old habits and establish stronger test-taking skills so I could get that higher score I wanted."

Jacqui S., Manhattan, NY.

"Dr. Donnelly was patient, kind and willing to work with me in various areas to help improve not just my score but my understanding of the questions. His schedule is flexible and he is willing to work with you to give you what you need. My score went up dramatically and I would recommend Tutors of Oxford to anyone."

"Dr. Donnelly is patient and supportive and is clear when explaining questions that were challenging to me. He also urged me to work out questions on my own, which was extremely helpful. He created an atmosphere in which I looked forward to the challenge of each section on the practice tests, and I definitely felt more confident taking the test. If I need to prepare for another standardized test, I will definitely contact Dr. Donnelly."
