GED Science Exam

Everything you need to know!

The Science section of the HiSET will focus on your ability to analyze and digest natural-sciences information. A blend of the skills needed in the Reading and Math sections, this assessment of qualitative and quantitative comprehension focuses on your ability to parse and digest analyses of scientific investigation and their results. Subjects questions will be drawn from include: physics, chemistry, botany, zoology, health, and astronomy.

The selections are designed to mimic scientific journal reports and will include graphs, tables, and charts to present information and results. These will be designed to include descriptions of hypotheses and testing methods, as well as the data returned and analysis on it. To get a really good score here, you should be able to read the two in tandem and see what kind of model the scientist built to test his hypothesis. Test questions will include being asked to identify research questions of interest, identifying the best design for investigating a specific research question, being able to recognize what kinds of conclusions can be inferred from results, evaluating the adequacy of procedures, and distinguishing between hypotheses, assumptions, and observations. There will be 50 questions in this section — again, all multiple-choice — and you will have 80 minutes to complete them in.

"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."

"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."
