NOT ENOUGH TIME FOR SOCIAL STUDIES

I;m waiting for my results.I walked in there thinking math would be my problem but it was actually social studies. Not that I didn't understand it, there just wasn't enough time. I had to guess the last 10 questions or so.I live in Canada so I have to score at least 450 on every test to pass. I'm just hoping I got enough right before I had to guess the last 10

GED test results from test date on nov19

I Got 520 on writing , 470 on socials, 500 on science, 500 on reading and 530 on math. I thought math was the easiest on the test because there weren't any hard algebra questions. The math questions were pretty much determine which method or math application fits the question. On the first part of the math you are allowed a calculator, but the questions were so easy u can calculate it on paper. The seem so easy to me I still had at least 15mins to spare. The socials and science were the hardest. In socials I'm not sure why it felt hard. In science it was hard because some of the questions require u to know the terms to match with the multiple choice. There was one question included a vocabulary botony or something and later I found out it relates to plants.... Anyways when I compared my mark with the Kaplan score conversion chart : Writing 520 = writing & essay 39/50 + 3/4 77% socials 470 = 29/50 58% science 500 = 36/50 72% reading 500 = 31/40 77% math 530 = 37/50 74%

Passed everything but Math

I passed every subject and had a passing score except for the math. I didnt have a 410. I scored a 390 which meant I only missed 2 questions in order to pass. Going to retake the math again and hope I do well and pass this one. Wish me luck and I know God is on my side! Good luck to all taking it.
