Passing the GACE Chemistry Test is a requirement for anyone who hopes to teach chemistry in the state of Georgia. Passing means getting a score of at least 220 on the exam scale of 100 to 300. Doing so should not be taken for granted, as the test is quite rigorous. For one thing, the test taker is racing against the clock, as both parts of the exam must be finished within four hours.
One test covers chemical reactions and principles of science, while the other tests for familiarity with energy, chemical bonding, atomic structure, and the properties of matter. Of course, these categories are wide ranging, and the test taker should expect to see questions covering every area of chemistry.
Altogether, there are 120 multiple-choice questions and four constructed-response questions on the two exams that make up the GACE Chemistry Test.
