Whether you left school at a young age or wish to follow a different educational path, earning your GED can open a world of opportunity. It can lead to higher-paying jobs and be the stepping stone you need to pursue further education.
Passing the GED exam is equivalent to earning your high school diploma and is accepted by employers and 99% of colleges.
The GED® Exam
The GED exam is made up of four test subjects. Each test subject covers topics that are taught in a standard high school curriculum.
The four test subjects include:
- Reading/Language Arts
- Reading for Meaning
- Identifying and Creating Arguments
- Grammar and Language
- Basic Math
- Basic Algebra
- Graphs and Functions
- Reading for Meaning in Science
- Designing and Interpreting Science Experiments
- Using Numbers and Graphics in Science
- Social Studies
- Reading for Meaning in Social Studies
- Analyzing Historical Events and Arguments in Social Studies
- Using Numbers and Graphs in Social Studies
You don’t have to take all four tests at once, allowing you to set your own pace. In Florida, the exam is offered in either English or Spanish.
