The GED diploma is across North America accepted just like a common high school diploma by virtually all colleges, universities, and employers. GED testing must be done at specific GED test centers, there’s NO online testing available. Internet sites with different information are false! GED testing can only be done at official testing centers.
The “digitalized” GED
The future is calling you, and by going for the GED exam you have the chance to answer that call. Acquiring your GED diploma is the key to opening the door to a college education, a new or better job, and you will earn the respect you really deserve. Don’t miss out on this chance to take this important step on the pathway to all sorts of opportunities in life.
Now, for the first time after 70 years of GED history, the test is offered in computer format and this “digitalization” brings you several benefits: registration and scheduling can be done online anytime/any day; test scores are visible right after testing; you can prepare for and take one test at a time; scores count for two years.
For several reasons, many adults have found themselves not in the position to complete high school and obtain their secondary education diploma, and it could be quite a few years before they could be in a position again to complete the requirements. Many of them have found employment that matches their interests and skills, but having a high school diploma is ever more required and beneficial.
The U.S. Department of Labor reports that a worker who has a secondary education degree (HS or GED diploma) will earn annually approximately $8,600 more than someone without it. Another reason to get a GED diploma is that it is a necessity if you want to go to college, technical school, or university.
GED preparation tips:
– Check the specific requirements of your state. All of our fifty states use specific regulations and requirements for their ‘High School Equivalency’ program. Take a good look at the specifics to avoid disappointment. Don’t waste your money and time!
– Use a good study guide. There are many study guides available at the local bookstore or your community library. Benefit from online GED study courses. If you are self-disciplined and feel you can handle it, take online classes to get ready for the GED exam.
– Make sure you can study in a comfortable setting. This is a crucial element because distraction can be destructive. Try to avoid an environment busy with your kids or other distractions. By studying in a quiet and comfortable space environment you will be certain that you benefit most of the time you spend that studying for your GED diploma.
– Know the content of the GED exam. Before you schedule your preparation, know what you can expect in the GED exam. How could you schedule your preparation if you don’t know what to expect and what the important issues are?
– Take as many GED practice tests as possible. This way you learn what to focus on most, and won’t waste any time.
– Write down your study experience. During your study, make note of what is essential and of any questions you have. This is a very time-effective way to deal with situations that stay in your mind.
