Vanessa from NY
I knew I needed my GED since I came to America in 1992. I did get it, however; I took it about 5 times and kept failing because of the math. I’ve been taking the GED since it was 3 digits, and the passing score was 225. I kept going and going, but kept giving up every time I got the results back, and I didn’t pass. Then when they changed the GED to the 2250 score, I took it again (in 2006) and failed the math again with same old low ugly score of 360. I was so hurt that I called Albany and asked one of the representatives if someone up there knew me because they kept on giving me the same 36/360 ugly score in math! The lady of course laughed at me, and said girl are you crazy (yeah, I was in so much denial that it was messing with my mind). However, after getting “fired” from my job this January 2013, I knew I had to do something because with all the skills I had I was not earning the money I needed and wanted because I had no degree.
