Tips for writing the GED essay

The GED diploma

The certificate that you get after passing the Alabama GED (General Education Development) test is generally accepted and recognized as an equivalency to a high school diploma by nearly all U.S. universities and employers. The GED exam assesses basic knowledge and skills that students learn in high school, and the new version of the GED exam has four tests on these academic fields: literacy, math, science, and social studies.

The GED test is fully computer-formatted, many multiple-choice questions are gone, and the former section ‘writing’ is embedded in the other testing subjects through essay-style answering. The GED passing score was adjusted in early 2016 to 145. To learn more go to this GED Scoring News page. If you want to know if you are eligible, go to GED in Alabama and you may also benefit from these free practice tests towards your GED exam.

Online GED registration

If you want to register for the new computer-formatted GED exam you now are required to do that online. Go to GED.com and you will be completely guided through the whole process. You must have a current email address and a password, and if you don’t have that you can create it via that site. You also need a credit or debit card in order to pay for your test(s).

You want to have a pencil and paper ready, as you must remember your email address and password for future use. After setting up your account, pay attention to the tab “Test Tips”. Read these tips well before you go further. Then set up an account with My GED to find out everything that is related to the GED program. Here you can apply for ADA accommodations, view your test results, schedule test appointments, find information about schools and employment market, and so much more, it really is an amazing support portal.

State eligibility requirements

You can sit for the exam when you are 18 years old, but 16 and 17-year-olds can do that too if they meet specific requirements. Please check with a prep facility or a GED test site close to you. You cannot already be the holder of a high school diploma, nor can you be signed up for another school course.

One test at a time if you wish

It is up to you to decide what part(s) of the exam you want to test for first. You can take one test at a time or all at the same day (if there is a test site that can accommodate that). Test results will be valid for two years from initial registration. On testing, don’t forget to bring a valid government-issued picture ID. But the most important of all things is your preparation, so check out also this website’s free online GED video lessons.

GED advantages

Some advantages of the GED test are clear: registration has become so much more simple. It is now done online, just as payments for the four modules (you don’t need to pay for the complete exam – 4 subject areas – all at once). Each of the four subjects costs $30, and you can sit for that subject that you prepared for. For registration online visit: GED.com. Your test results are now returned within a few hours after completion of the test module.

GED information

If you sign up with MyGED you will come to an online portal where you can create your own account and discover everything regarding the latest edition (2014-series) of the GED program: from testing site locations to scheduling your tests and keeping track of your scores, from preparation guidance to information about employment developments and school profiling, it’s all there, amazing.

The four GED tests

The GED exam is offered only on computer, and most preparation facilities provide computer lessons as well to allow students to become comfortable with this way of testing. The GED exam allows you the following time frames per test subject: Language Arts 150 minutes (there is a 10-min. break), Math 115 minutes, Science 90 minutes, and Social Studies 70 minutes.

LAUNCH grant

In North Alabama, there is now more financial help available. The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs started LAUNCH, a $618,000 grant that is intended to serve low-income and at-risk youth. The mission of LAUNCH is to make sure that the number of young people that are prepared and qualified to join the North Alabama workforce will increase.

The focus of Project LAUNCH is on education, training, and employment. In case you never completed high school, the program can support you in obtaining your GED diploma, and in case you did complete your high school education (or received the GED diploma) the program can help you develop your employment options. The program can also help you if you would like to go to college or vocational training but don’t have the financial means. LAUNCH can also provide you with professional coaching and mentoring.
