What is the GED, and who is it for?
For those who are over the age of 16 and not enrolled in high school, the GED test provides the opportunity to earn a certificate or diploma that is widely recognized as the equivalent of a high school diploma. Many schools accept GED test certification for entrance into a college or university program if scores are equivalent to those of recently graduating high school seniors.
What is on the GED?
The GED is broken up into four separate subject exams, including mathematical reasoning, reasoning through language arts, social studies, and science. There is no need to take all exams at once, so test-takers should space them out as needed.
