Can an Asian Student Pass?
Sotheavy from California, GED Student
What motivated you to get your GED? My cousin and my family motivated me to get the GED. I am an Asian who is now living in the USA, and I want to continue my studies in college. However, I don’t have enough money for tuition. The only way I can afford it is if I pass the GED. Then I’ll be able to apply for financial aid.
How have your friends and family helped you? They have encouraged me. Even though it is hard, they tell me that if I keep on trying, I’ll eventually succeed.
What problems have you faced? I’ve had a lot of problems with the GED practice test. I checked out a GED book from the library and took the practice test. I got a lot of wrong answers, so I am not confident about passing the real test. I don’t know if the GED is too hard for Asian students to pass. I am very afraid that I can’t do it, and that I won’t be able to continue with college. If I go to school to study for the GED, will I be able to pass it then? Should I try to get my high school diploma instead? I don’t know which is easier to get.
What do you hope to gain from getting your GED? I really want to get the GED because I want to continue my studies in college. If I get the GED, I’ll be able to get a good job and have a better life in the future.
Do you have more to your story? I first came to the United States just for five months. I’ve since then been allowed to live her permanently. I am still young, so I want to continue my studies, but I need financial aid to help me with college. So, I have two ways to get it. The first is to pass the GED, but I don’t know whether or not I can. I plan to study for 1 year before taking the test. The second choice is to enroll in high school for about 2 years. However, I don’t want to spend much time in high school. That’s why I’d rather get my GED. However, I don’t know whether an Asian student can pass it or not. I’m not very good at English. I really need help! Thank you for your time!
