For the new tester, there is one part of the registration that needs to be done on-line at www.utk16.org/scoring (phone help line: 512-475-9400, if needed). This is the first step toward testing. On the home page, the candidate will find a large link entitled "GED TESTERS: click here for the GED Demographic Form" in bold red text. Once testers click this link, they will find the clear, step by step instructions. To take the test in Gatesville, be sure to use 0750 for the center number. The rest of the registration and paying to take the test must be done at GHS.
