NYS Geometry Regents exam

The Geometry Regents exam is typically administered in January, June, and August of every school year. Most students will take this exam after successfully completing a 1-year high-school-level geometry course.

The Core Curriculum for Geometry includes most of the topics previously included in the geometry units for Math A and Math B. It also includes some additional geometry topics such as midpoint and concurrency theorems, similarity theorems, logical connectives, and aspects of solid geometry including parallel and perpendicular planes.

An Overview of the Geometry Regents Exam


All students in New York State must pass at least one of the three Regents math exams in order to graduate from high school.

To receive an Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation, among other requirements, students must pass all three math exams.



  • Since scrap paper is not provided or permitted for any part of the exam, you must use the blank spaces in the question booklet as scrap paper.
  • After you figure out the answer to each multiple choice question in Part I, you must write the numeral that precedes the correct choice in the space provided on the separate tear-off answer sheet for Part I found at the back of the question booklet.
  • The answers and the work for the questions in Parts II, III and IV must be written directly in the question booklet in the space provided underneath the questions. All work should be written in pen except the graphs which should be drawn in pencil.
  • If you need graph paper, it will be provided in the question booklet.


The Geometry Regents exam is divided into four parts with a total of 38 questions.
  • Part I consists of 28 standard multiple-choice questions with four possible answers. There is no penalty for guessing. This section has a total of 56 points.
  • Parts II, III, and IV contain six, three, and one question(s), respectively. The answers and the accompanying work for the questions in these three parts must be written directly in the question booklet. You must show or explain how you arrived at each answer by indicating the necessary steps, including appropriate formula substitutions, diagrams, graphs, and charts. If you use a guess-and-check strategy to arrive at a numerical answer for a problem, you must indicate your method and show the work for at least three guesses.
  • All questions in each of the four parts of the test must be answered.

Graphing calculators are required for the Geometry Regents examination. During the administration of the Regents exam, schools are required to make a graphing calculator available for the exclusive use of each student.

You will need to use your calculator to work with trigonometric functions of angles, evaluate roots, and perform routine calculations.

Knowing how to use a graphing calculator gives you an advantage when deciding how to solve a problem. Rather than solving a problem algebraically with pen and paper, it may be easier to solve the same problem using a graph or table created by a graphing calculator.

A graphical or numerical solution using a calculator can also be used to help confirm an answer obtained using standard algebraic methods.
