The GED: Gateway to a Brighter Future

The GED: Gateway to a Brighter Future

Sometimes life gets in the way of meeting your goals, but if you’re one of more than 600,000 people worldwide who takes their GED test this year, your goals won’t seem quite so far off. Acquiring your GED is a huge step towards higher education, career advancement, and a better salary — and we applaud your decision to pursue it!

A history of success
GED testing was established in 1942 to assist World War II veterans in finishing their education when they returned from the battlefield. Since then, more than 12.6 million people are estimated to have earned their GED, including celebrities such as comedian Bill Cosby, actor Christian Slater, and Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell.

A measurement of achievement
The GED is designed to measure the basic skills usually acquired during high school in reading, writing, science, social studies, and mathematics. Passing your GED is the equivalent of placing in the top 25 percent of your senior class, so acquiring it is quite an accomplishment!

In fact, a GED is such a good indicator of your academic skill level, that it is accepted for admission by more than 95 percent of U.S. colleges and universities. If you plan to pursue higher education beyond your GED, you will have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to deciding where you want to go.
