    Q:  How will I know which exam(s) to take?
    A:  The Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) is the state agency that licenses teachers in Georgia.  They determine what exam(s) prospective educators must take.  Your college advisor may be able to tell you which exams you are required to take, but ultimately, it is the GaPSC—not your college—that determines this. Click here to see a listing of all GACE exams on the official GACE website.  You may also want to check with your college/university advisor for any additional requirements that your college may have. Click here for more information on required testing on the GaPSC website.
