50 successful people with a GED

GED and the economy

In America, we can see more than 4.2 million unfilled jobs that need applicants who have a high school education. In case there won’t be enough men and women that are schooled to this level, these jobs will remain unfilled and the national economy cannot be performing as it is supposed to. If you become one of those five hundred thousand adults who pass the GED test every year, you will also have the opportunity to get one of these positions.

No Online GED testing

GED testing over the internet is NOT possible. Personal appearance at a Florida GED testing site is required. Two years after the new GED program was implemented, GED Testing Service reduced the passing score for each module 145. Check also this website’s free GED video lessons and practice tests and in this post, you can find links to all GED prep locations and test facilities in America. For enrollment criteria go to the page GED testing in Florida.

GED and your future

This not only positively affects your personal income, but it will also enlighten the lives of people around you, and make a contribution to the economy as a whole. In the modern world, you need a high school degree or GED for everything, for skilled labor apprenticeships frequently too. If you don’t hold a high school diploma or GED, you won’t be able to continue your education at college or university level or go to trade school. The GED certificate is the first major step towards a better life for you and the people around you.

GED acceptance

You have proven that you have high-school level academic skills with a GED diploma. Today about 96% of employers and 95% of colleges and universities in the U.S. equates a GED diploma to a traditional high school diploma. So you have a better chance of getting a better job or pursuing higher education with a GED diploma.
