The 2014 GED test is a four-subject high school equivalency test that measures skills required by high schools. The four subjects are Science, Social Studies, Math, and Reasoning Through Language Arts. A Maryland High School Diploma is awarded to those passing all four modules of the GED tests.

Juvenile Services Education System (JSES) affords all students the ability, when appropriate, the opportunity to obtain a diploma by exam. JSES has Pearson VUE GED labs at the Charles H. Hickey School and at Green Ridge Youth Center. Testers are limited to a total of three tests per module per calendar year. If additional retests are needed, the tester must wait until January 1 of the next year to schedule retest(s).
