Who is the GED for?
The GED (General Education Development) program is for adults who never completed high school, and gives them the chance to acquire a diploma that compares to a standard high school diploma, and is accepted as such by nearly all American colleges, universities, and employers.
Is the GED exam offered online?
No, the GED exam is NOT available online. You must go in person to one of Florida’s official GED test centers. Websites that offer the GED exam or the diploma via the internet are fraudulent! The so-called diplomas they provide are worthless, you will not be able to use them and these con artists are only after your hard-earned dollars. Please don’t be fooled by these practices.
The GED exam covers content that high school students must know upon graduation. To qualify for the GED exam, you need to be a Florida resident and at least 18 years of age. You cannot already hold a secondary education degree, and not be partaking in any other school program. For those who are 16 and 17, there are other strict regulations, so contact a test center near you.
GED passing score
GED scoring takes place on a scale 100 to 200, and you needed to have a result of at least 150 on every one of the four tests to pass the exam. Two years after the last GED version’s introduction, this was adjusted to 145. Studies had shown that GED holders were frequently outperforming high school graduates in college and that the bar had been raised too high, so the adjustment was justified.
All information on the GED program is available at GED.com. When you register with MyGED you get access to an online portal where everything is perfectly explained, step by step. This is also the place to find out about registration, scheduling your tests (you can take only one test if you like), school and program descriptions and explications, and domestic and international employment trends and developments.
Candidates are not required but strongly advised, to take a GED prep course, and also to take a GED practice test before they sit for the actual exam. Practice tests give a clear indication of your educational level and clearly identify which subject areas you need to concentrate most in order to become successful.
The GED exam
For many years, the GED was also called ‘America’s Largest High School’. Government incentives had helped to make the test become a ticket to several federal jobs programs and college grants.
For some prisoners, the GED program offered also a chance to get out of prison sooner, and the program has provided quite a few illegal and undocumented immigrants a greater chance to stay in the U.S. The GED exam has been revised several times over the years, but the overhaul it went through a few years ago was the biggest change ever.
Now, the GED has become more difficult and a lot more expensive. For many years, the GED exam has been dismissively labeled the “Good Enough Diploma” because getting the GED diploma was much easier than acquiring a high school diploma the conventional way, but that has now changed. The GED is now aligned with rigorous Common Core standards and meets expectations and requirements again from industry and higher education.
*) The Literacy Council Gulf Coast
The Literacy Council Gulf Coast is a non-profit organization that is committed to enhancing the English and reading knowledge and skills of the residents of Lee, Hendry, and North Collier Counties. The service area includes Cape Coral, Bonita Springs, Lehigh Acres, Fort Myers, Naples, and LaBelle.
The organization is headquartered in Bonita Springs (26820 Old 41 Road, Bonita Springs, FL 34135). LCGC was established through a cooperation of the Literacy Volunteers of Lee County and the Literacy Council of Bonita Springs and the organization has been supporting students to enhance their literacy knowledge and skills since 1989.
The Literacy Council Gulf Coast educates and trains volunteers to assist students with their efforts to improve or acquire English skills. The council provides one-on-one as well as group classes totally free of charge. The council has over 800 volunteer tutors and is always interested in more volunteers.
The council strongly believes in the power of literacy as a tool to enhance the livelihoods of many students, families, communities, and society in general. The council strives to provide the highest standards of literacy education, and offers quality services for the best individual achievement and helps residents reach their full potential.
**) Immokalee Technical Center
Immokalee Technical Center offers a GED program that is developed to get applicants ready to take and pass the four tests of the GED exam and acquire their high school diploma. The school has many committed and certified instructors who educate their students in the four subject areas of the examination, Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies. The new GED exam is aligned with the Common Core Education Standards.
GED test-takers get trained in an inviting classroom setting using a wide range of computer-based study programs. Instruction happens in small and big classes, via self-paced assignments, and online instruction to encourage students to work hard to successfully take on the GED exam.
For qualifying applicants, the school offers also a GED fast-track program. Most U.S. employers want job applicants to have a high school or similar diploma, and the GED diploma is your best ticket to better employment.
