About the GED

Here at Bamberg/Barnwell Adult Education, we’re excited to offer you the GED program and a ​fighting chance at a good job with good wages.

The GED program gives you everything you need for success, and MyGED will help get you there.

With MyGED, you receive unprecedented support before and after you test.

Plus, find prep tools to help you prepare for test day and resources to help you move forward to what’s next.

MyGED was built with you in mind. Get started at www.GED.com.


We pre-test all students to gain knowledge about the students’ math and reading abilities relative to the GED test. We schedule classes according to the scoring level on the test. We continue this service until the student achieves a test score needed for GED passage. We also offer official GED practice tests so students know what to expect. We then help them sign up to take the GED.

MyGED is your start-to-finish tool for the GED program. Flexible, convenient and the support you need before and after the GED test. Built with you in mind, MyGED helps you take control of your life and your future.

The GED test has been updated to make sure it measures what graduating high school seniors know and what colleges and employers will expect of you.

There are Four (4) parts:
Reasoning Through Language Arts (150 minutes including a 10-minute break), Mathematical Reasoning (115 minutes), Science (90 minutes), Social Studies (70 minutes). 

On the GED test, you need to earn at least 145 points on each subject to pass. To find out if you’re likely to pass, take GED Ready: The Official Practice Test and the only test that can tell you if you’re likely to pass.

In South Carolina, the fee per subject is $37.50.

BBAE offers a full payment scholarship if the criteria outlined in orientation is met.
