    1. Hi!

      Please check with the university you are applying to and confirm that they are accepting the GED credential.

      1. For alabama is changing it to 140 they voting on the 3rd to kick out standardized testing and common core so be on the look out 😁

  2. If I passed the LA, Science & social science in 2019 but not the math, will I still be able to take the math in 2020 & get my GED certificate or will I have to start all over?

  3. Hello I was told there are five different versions of the Ged test so why when you score example like for me 141-142 they suggest you work on certain skills to Boost score and when you work on that and take the test again you score even lower I think the same test should be given when you scored higher because the math which I’m struggling with and you get a whole new test and it’s confusing so basically you have to accumulate and learn all this new material and still end up failing I really think the test is or has been harder over the years I’m still Striving to pass this math since that’s the only thing I’m lacking

  4. Hi. I read that GED has recently undergone some changes. Should I purchase new study books that reflect the most recent changes or can I continue to use my books from 2018 and 2019? Please advise.
