HOW HARD IS THE GED TEST?

It's easier than you think. You only need 45% correct answers to pass. So, right away you have cut the prep time for the test in half!  That means on a test with 50 questions, you only need to get 23 right to pass.  A lot of people put off getting their GED because they think it will take too much time to get ready. Their lives are busy and they think the GED tests will be hard to pass.  Not to worry.   Essential Education has created a way to study that actually speeds up the process. Did you know, studying in short periods actually makes learning easier.  The principle is called spaced learning.

HOW TO PASS

GED CREDENTIAL IN 6 WEEKS

What is the process of getting your high school equivalency credential?  It’s actually very easy.  The best way to start is with a practice test to find out what you need to study.  Next, put together a study plan of the skills you need to brush up on and then a schedule of when you’re going to study.  It’s a good idea to start with your easiest subject first so you start succeeding right away.  The next step is to schedule the tests. The subject tests can be taken on separate days. A good plan is to schedule the tests early so that you have a goal to keep you focused on your study.

Jazzebel's Story

"I had high hopes of graduating high school and walking down the aisle in front of a huge crowd earning my diploma. Well, that all changed when I got pregnant at 16 years old." 

Patrina's Story

"I didn’t finish high school because there is no alternative opportunity in my country. Studying for the GED test was about understanding and breaking things down from scratch, ensuring that each item is understood before moving on to the next level. For me, Math was by far most challenging, but I understood it."

Zainab's Story

"I went online and frantically searched everywhere for online high school diploma programs, then I found a website that said 'beware of the online high school diploma' and 'beware of fake GED.' I read more and found out that most online high school diplomas are not accredited and are not accepted by the majority of colleges and universities, so I realized that my best bet was getting my GED certificate."
