This is copied directly from the GEDTS site:
(http://www.acenet.edu/clll/ged/overview-A.cfm )

"The standard score scale for the GED Tests is derived directly from the
performance of graduating high school seniors. Standard scores, and the
accompanying percentile ranks, provide the vehicle for comparing the
performance of GED candidates to the performance of graduating high
school seniors. In order to pass the GED Tests, the GED candidate must
currently demonstrate a level of skill that meets or surpasses that of
the top 60 percent of graduating high school seniors."
So actually 40% would NOT pass, 60% would pass.
