Five things to know about discounted retakes


“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” That’s what we tell our students, right? Now it’s even easier with the discounted retake program.

Here are five things to know about discounted retakes:

1. Candidates who don’t pass get two discounted retakes for every subject purchased. This benefit is for every candidate - not just those who purchase all four tests at once.

2. The discounted rate is automatically calculated in the MyGED™ shopping cart – no code needed.

3. Discounted retakes are good for 12 months after the initial test attempt.

4. GED Testing Service waives their $20 testing fee, so Florida candidates are only responsible for the state fee of $12 per test.  

5. Candidates can test three times on the same subject without waiting. After the third attempt, they have to wait 60 days before trying again.
