About the Exam
The GACE Biology exam is used by the state of Georgia to determine the knowledge of aspiring middle or high school biology teachers seeking certification in this content area. Test II is the second of this two-part computer-based exam, containing 80 selected-response questions. The exam consists of three subareas: Scientific Inquiry, Processes, Technology and Society; Organismal Biology; and Ecology. The Ecology section accounts for 40% of the exam, with the remaining 60% split evenly between the other two subareas. Candidates are given two hours to complete all questions. A score of 220 must be attained to pass this test.
