On March 9, 2016 California lowered the passing score for the GED test from 150 to 145. 

What is the impact? Lowering the passing score to 145 applies retroactively to all persons who achieved a score of 145 or higher on the 2014 version for the test since January 1, 2014. 

For information on how to obtain the certificate call (866) 895-8860 or by email

Please note that the Stanislaus County Office of Education will not be issuing the retro active certificates and all inquiries should be made to the National Testing Service at the number or email listed above.
