If you don’t have a traditional high school diploma, you can still earn an equivalent credential by getting your GED. Basically, a GED is a credential that can substitute for a high school diploma. Since most employers (and colleges) will require you to have graduated from high school, it’s usually a good idea to get a GED if you don’t complete high school. Doing so helps to ensure that you’ll have access to more opportunities later in life.
GED is an acronym that stands for General Educational Development. It’s a test that measures whether students possess the academic skills equivalent to those of graduating high school seniors. People who dropped out of high school initially, but are concerned about their prospects without a diploma, often take the GED Test.
The four content areas that comprise the GED Test correspond to the four most prominent core subjects in high school: 1
* Reasoning Through Language Arts * Mathematical Reasoning * Social Studies * Science
Students can prepare for the test through study and instruction available through classes, and GED prep books available at libraries or online. After going through all four areas of study, and taking practice tests, students can then take the official GED test.
