What is the GED?

GED stands for the General Educational Development tests. The GED test is your chance to get the job or career you want. These exams are taken by individuals who did not earn a high school diploma and cover four main subject areas. The successful completion of these tests provides the same benefits as graduating high school. The GED test credential is the only high school equivalency credential recognized in all 50 states.

At FKSG we believe that everybody deserves a second chance. Graduates prove their academic knowledge and skills in the basic subject areas which includes four subject tests: language arts (reading and writing), science, mathematics and social studies. These tests are designed to ensure successful examinees have the same subject area knowledge as high school graduates and cover such topics as reading comprehension, algebra, civics, history, government, geography, life science and Earth science.

The tests are computer-based and include several types of questions, including fill in the blank, multiple-choice and short answer. Testing times for each exam vary. The language arts test takes 150 minutes to complete, while the mathematics test lasts 115 minutes. The science and social studies tests are 90 minutes long. When you pass the exam, you’re awarded a GED certificate or diploma, depending on the state where it is issued.

To be eligible for the GED, you must not be currently enrolled in high school or a high school graduate. You must also be at least 16 years old and meet any additional requirements of the state you live in.

You may continue your education at the postsecondary level, upon successful completion of the four GED subject tests. Most U.S. colleges and universities accept applicants with a GED, provided they meet any other admission requirements. You may also begin a career because many employers recognize the GED as the equivalent of a high school diploma.
