The GED test is a widely recognized program for students and adults that requires an adequate level of knowledge and skills equivalent to a high school education. Taking the GED test is a positive move toward your future academic and career goals.
For many years, the GED credential has been an acceptable substitute for a high school diploma. According to the College Board, about 95 percent of U.S. colleges and universities accept GED graduates who meet their other qualifications for admission.
The GED tests measure the skills and knowledge that most students learn during high school. The five subject area tests which comprise the GED test battery are mathematics, language arts, reading, writing (including an essay), science, and social studies.
You are eligible for the GED test if you are not enrolled in high school, have not graduated from high school, are at least 16 years old, and you meet the requirements of your individual state. These requirements include age, residency, and the length of time since leaving school. To set up an exam appointment, contact your local testing center. There are about 3,400 official GED Testing Centers in the United States and Canada. The GED test is not available online.
If you need to take the GED test, preparation is very important. The test is fairly challenging. Fortunately, there are numerous GED study guides available for free and to purchase. You may find resources at your local library, online GED study guides, and bookstores. The GED website (www.acenet.edu) also provides sample test questions and other helpful study materials.
