age (it depends on the school district) and can officially withdraw from school.


Q. How will students know which tests they still need to take, if they don’t recall which

subject tests they have already passed?

they include their full name, at the time of testing, address at the time of testing (if

Students may also request an official transcript of prior testing. The process, and

Application H, to request a transcript can be found on the

HSE homepage.

the GED account?

must be NYS, as only NYS test takers may take the exam in NYS.
