What is a passing score?

Test results are expressed as standard scores ranging from 200 to 800.

A successful applicant must achieve a minimum average standard score of 450 (2250 total points) for the combined five tests with no score on any one test less than 410.  An explanation of results is printed on the back of the transcripts.  High school equivalency diplomas are issued directly to examinees passing the tests.
