Registration for GED Test

It is a battery of five tests, specially planned for individuals who for some reasons were unable to get formal education. Any one who is 18 years of age or older and is not a high school graduate can register for the test. A citizen of the United States or a person who has been a school dropout for a minimum one year can sit for the test. It is also sometimes known as General Equivalency Diploma. In order to pass, the examinee must obtain an average of 450 or more in all the five tests and 410 score on an average in each of the five tests. The test taker can take the test in English, French and Spanish. Before appearing for the main test, it is necessary for the test taker to appear and clear the  pre-test. The pre-test gives the authorities an opportunity to find out each test taker’s level of efficiency.

On passing the main test, American Council on Education, which is recognized by almost all the colleges and universities of America, awards the candidate with a diploma and on the basis of this diploma; the candidate can upgrade his qualification and also secure a good job.

Before appearing for the test, it is compulsory for all candidates to register first with the concerned authorities. Make sure that you have all the required documents before registration. You must register in person. The test fee must be paid at the time of booking. The fee varies from state to state and is received in cash, money order, check or voucher.
