• TASC Exam

    New York State has chosen the Test Assessing Secondary Completion™ (TASC) for the High School Equivalency exam beginning January 2014. Passing the TASC exam is one way adults and out-of-school youth who did not finish high school can get a high school equivalency diploma. In New York State, the GED® test is no longer the path to a high school equivalency diploma.


    Any New York State resident, 19 years of age or older, and without a high school diploma or HSE diploma can take the HSE exam. For the rules about eligibility to take the HSE test for people under 19 years of age, please contact the TST BOCES Adult Education office.


    The TASC exam includes five sections: reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. The TASC exam takes about nine hours to complete and is typically administered on multiple days. Individuals must pass all five sections to receive a High School Equivalency Diploma.

    Passing scores from previous GED® tests will count toward passing the TASC exam.
