In this article, you can find all GED® prep classes and testing sites in the Melbourne area.
The state of Florida used the GED test for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The HSE test offers persons who never graduated high school the opportunity to obtain an equivalent degree.
The GED exam comes with four separate subtests in these fields: literacy, math, science, and social studies.
Test takers can take one subtest at a time and scores count for two years from the first registration.
GED testing over the internet is NOT possible. You must come to a state-designated testing site in person!

Who is the GED exam for?
The computer-formatted GED (General Education Development) exam is especially for adults who did not finish high school and gives them a second chance to acquire a comparable diploma. The credential that you will receive upon passing the Florida GED test is in the United States regarded as equivalent to a high school diploma by government bodies, employers, colleges, and universities.
The new exam
A few years back, the GED test went through serious adjustments. The changes were the most drastic since the inception of the test some 70 years ago and were very impressive. Persons who want to sit for the exam these days must make sure they become perfectly prepared. The options are great nowadays. Attend classes listed here or sign up for an online GED course, get books from your local library or bookstore and prepare by yourself, possibilities enough!
Get a better life
A lot of changes can be surprising, sometimes even disorienting at first. Nevertheless, all the changes the GED have been through have come for the better. There are 4.2 million unfilled jobs that for the larger part require a high school education and the GED is again appealing to employers. Take your chance and go for your GED certificate. It will be the first step on the road to a better future.
