For who is the GED?
The new computer-formatted GED (General Education Development) test is for men and women who never completed high school, and who wish to obtain a comparable degree. After you pass the Washington state GED exam, you will be awarded a certificate that is recognized and accepted as being equivalent to a normal high school diploma by government institutions, businesses, recruiters and colleges all over the nation.
In early 2016, the passing score for each GED subtest was reduced to 145. You can read more here. GED testing over the Internet is NO option, it must be done at an official Washington State test site.
The GED credential is accepted all across North America as the equivalency of a regular high school diploma and allows for a college education. To see if you qualify, go to GED testing criteria in Washington State. See also this post that has links to all GED prep sites and test locations in the US.
