GACE Biology Practice Test (026, 027, & 526)

Biology has long existed as one of the most widely studied subjects by high schoolers across the United States. In fact, you probably have memories of your high school class in this very subject. You’re likely on this page, however, because you’re planning to teach Biology professionally and are nearing the end of your training. Congratulations on making it this far! You’ve nearly reached the finish line, but there’s one last hurdle you have to clear before you can earn your certification. This hurdle is the GACE Biology exam.

In Georgia, all incoming teachers are required to take a GACE (Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators) test relating to their specific field. The purpose of this specific exam is to assess your preparedness to teach professionally.

Like the other GACE subject tests, the GACE Biology test is split up into two sections. Both of these sections are timed, and made up of 80 multiple choice (“selected-response”) questions. You will be given a total of two hours to complete each subtest, and must finish both in order to pass the full exam and receive your certification.

Test I deals with Genetics and Evolution (50 percent) and Cell Biology: Cell Structure and Function (50 percent).

In terms of subject matter, Test II will cover Ecology:

  • Organisms and Environments (40 percent)
  • Organismal Biology (30 percent)
  • Scientific Inquiry, Processes, Technology, and Society (30 percent)
