GED Student Stories
Except For Math
Erika from Kansas
I have two kids, and one on the way. I’m facing a tough divorce. I really need a future for my children. One I can depend on.
I have no friends or family to motivate me, but (Read more...)
I try my best to encourage and motivate myself. I passed all the areas on the GED test, except for math. I’m having a difficult time getting the information that I need to stick. After I pass, I hope to gain better opportunities as far as work, and the ability to go to school and elevate myself.
From the GED Academy: Math is the the most difficult part of the test for a lot of people! The best thing to do is practice it every day. Learning about algebra one day, then taking a test on it a month later without ever practicing it would be difficult for anyone. Find some time to sit down every day and practice some equations that give you trouble. If practice the things that are hardest for you every day, the test will be a lot easier! Good luck!
I Wanted to Quit
Jenny from Kansas
What motivated you to get your GED degree? I don’t have one, and I need to get a better job so that I can make a better life for myself and my family.
How have your (Read more...)
friends and family helped you? They won’t let me give up, and they help me with my kids. If it wasn’t for them, I don’t know if I could do it.
What problems have you faced? I have faced financial problems. I had to give up a lot of things that I wanted to do with my kids.
What do you hope to gain from getting your GED degree? When I finally get my GED, I am going to go to college. I want to get training in something, so I can get a good job. Then I can make a good life for my family.
Do you have more to your story? It has been a challenge to get my GED. There are so many difficulties that I wanted to quit doing it. My kids, family and friends they won’t let me, though. I am glad that I am doing it. It will be worth it in the end. I encourage everybody who needs it to get their GED.
From The GED Academy: It’s great to have clear goals when you’re working hard toward something, like the GED. You say that you want to go to college, which is great, but take it a step farther. Start doing research now about what you want to go to college for. The clearer your goals—the more you can visualize exactly what it is you want—the easier it will be for you to study now and word toward them. Good luck!
