NOTE to Test Takers:  The HSE Office cannot provide test scores over the phone or by email. If you have registered and taken a GED® Test beginning in 2022, your scores can be found in your GED account. If you need to confirm which TASC subtests were taken and passed between 2014 and 2021 - or which GED subject tests were taken and passed between 2002-2013 (2003-2013 for GED in Spanish) - please contact the HSE Office at the call center number or email address listed above. Only previously passed qualifying HSE subtests and/or passing Regent’s exam credits may be blended with the current GED exam. Scores do not correlate between exams and are not cumulative.
