What is GED Test?
The GED, General Educational Development or General Education Diploma, is for those without a High School Diploma. It's equivalent to American High School (10+2) that you can pass within 3-4 months. GED is a set of tests that when passed certify the test taker has met high-school level academic skills. More than 17 million people have received a GED Credential since the program began in 1943. Many government institutions and universities regard the GED as the same as a high school diploma with respect to program eligibility and as a prerequisite for admissions.
The GED Testing Program is used to certify high school-level knowledge and skills, and allows adults to prove what they know. The test provides a uniform measure of high school achievement, and is globally recognized as a measure of high school knowledge and skills. Upon passing the GED Tests, examinees receive a State High School Diploma. The GED Tests measure communication, information-processing, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills in four content areas: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies.
