Adjusted GED passing score

If you want to read everything about the adjusted GED passing requirements (the passing score was dropped five points to 145 in early 2016) you can go to our GED News posts, and take also advantage of this website’s free practice tests for your GED exam.

What is the GED diploma?

The certificate that you get after successfully completing the California GED-TASC-HiSET exam is nationally recognized as an equivalency to a high school diploma and accepted by virtually all recruiters, businesses and universities. The GED-TASC-HiSSET exam is not available online, you have to go in person to an official GED testing site.

Benefits of getting your GED credential

– Find A Better Job – the majority of the jobs in this country call for employees who have earned their high school or  GED, TASC, or HiSET credential. Most employers are accepting the HSE (High School Equivalency) Diploma as a high school degree.

– Enhance Your Self-Respect – by getting hold of your GED-TASC-HiSET diploma you will be proud you have accomplished something to improve your life. You have proved that you are able to accomplish anything you set your mind to.

– Carry On With Your Education – once you’ve got your HSE diploma, you can move on into college.  The GED-TASC-HiSET diploma is accepted as the equivalency to a high school degree by virtually every college and university.

TASC-GED-HiSET and your future

Getting a GED and changing your career – With a GED-TASC-HiSET diploma, you can be in a better position to shift careers, but before you go that way, you really need to ensure that you take into consideration all possible choices. You should not make a mistake of switching careers without an elaborate plan to follow. There are many people who rush important matters and before long, they find themselves in a tight spot.

Testing strategies

Before you achieve success in career switch, you may have to strategize. This could take you a couple of months before you achieve your goal. Without a good strategy in mind, your wait could take several months. Your strategies should cover utilization of the available resources such as training aid and finances.

If you plan well, you may not just have to take the first job offer which comes your way because it may not be the best choice for you. But it can be tough when you have friends and family pressurizing you to make a career change. If you find yourself in this scenario, you should just ignore this temptation because your reason for switching careers is to please yourself, not others.

Moreover, you will need to seek valuable advice from someone who has been in that situation before. Things get much easier when you have a mentor to work with. As soon as you make a decision regarding the career which you will go for, it’s imperative that you look for important contacts and join forums which will provide you with the information which you need to succeed in your new career.
