Alaska GED Practice Test

The best way to make sure you pass the Alaska GED test is to be prepared. If you think you’re ready for the test, or if you want to know what to study, you should take a GED practice test. While Alaska doesn’t require a practice test to take the GED, a practice test can improve your GED scores. Find out about online GED practice tests for Alaska.

Alaska GED Testing Eligibility

You are eligible to take the GED test in Alaska if you are at least 18 years old and do not have a high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate. If you are 16 and 17 years old, you may take the test if you present a withdrawal slip from your former school in Alaska and a legal emancipation document or written permission from a parent or guardian. All GED test-takers in the state of Alaska must be physically present in the state at the time of application and GED testing. Alaskans temporarily out of the state may receive a diploma upon submission of an application by the GED Testing Service, a United States Armed Forces Institute, a Veteran’s Administration Hospital, or a federal correctional institution.

Don’t take the Alaska GED test unless you’re prepared. You can pass, but if you’re like most people, you’ll need some brush-up and to get familiar with the test. Find out about GED online classes.

Alaska GED: College Eligibility

More than 60 percent of GED test-takers plan to go on to college. The GED exam can help you get there. Ninety-eight percent of colleges and universities in the U.S. accept the GED credential, though some colleges require additional tests, such as the SAT or the ACE. Check with the admissions offices of the colleges you’re interested in for their requirements. Beware of online high school degrees that colleges won’t accept.

Alaska GED Retesting

If you took the AK GED test and did not pass, you don’t have to take the whole test again, just the parts that you did not pass. You cannot retest for one subject before taking all the parts of the test. Before you test again, go back to study, to make sure that you’re prepared. The state of Alaska does not require a wait period before testing again, but you cannot take the GED exam more than three times in a calendar year. The fee to retest in Alaska is $5 per subject.

You will also need to fill out an Accommodations Request Form for either ADHD, Emotional/Mental Health, Learning Disabilities, or Health Disabilities, which has sections for you, the GED Chief Examiner in your area, and your evaluator.
