“GED” General Educational Development Certificate

If you do not have a traditional high school diploma, you can still earn an equivalent credential by getting your GED. But what is a GED? What does GED stand for? Basically, a GED is a credential that can substitute for a high school diploma. Since most employers (and all colleges) will require you to have graduated from high school, it is usually a good idea to get a GED if you do not complete high school. Doing so helps to ensure that you will have access to more opportunities later in life.

The following points are worthy of note:

  • You must be at least 16 years old to take the GED Test, and you must not be enrolled in high school.
  • You must pass all four subject tests in the GED battery of tests, which means scoring at least a 145 on each test. A score of 165 on each test is the benchmark for college and career readiness, and you will receive an Honours Distinction if you reach this score. The four tests take seven and a half hours totaland are administered by computer. You do not have to take them all on the same day, but some states enforce specific time frames for completing the tests. Most questions are multiple choice although there is also a mix of fill-in-the-blank, drag and drop, and select-an-area questions, as well as an essay question on the Reasoning Through Language Arts section.
  • If you do not pass a test the first time around, you can retake it.

What does GED stand for? GED is an acronym that stands for General Educational Development. It is a test that measures whether students possess the academic skills equivalent to those of graduating high school seniors (Grade 12 or Year 13). People who dropped out of high school initially, but are concerned about their prospects without a diploma, often take the GED Test. The four content areas that comprise the GED Test correspond to the four most prominent core subjects in high school:

  • Reasoning Through Language Arts
  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Social Studies
  • Science

So, to sum up:

What does GED stand for, and what is the GED meaning? GED stands for “General Educational Development,” the GED is a test people who didn’t graduate high school can take to show they have the skills and knowledge necessary to attend a school or take a job that requires a high school diploma. If you did not graduate from high school, and either cannot or do not want to return, taking the GED is an alternative way to help you further your education and career path.

      Covid-19: Tutorial Procedures

      Just recently the Covid-19 situation has become increasingly worse once again and obviously worrying for all of us. Schools are closed or likely to be closed and will be offering online learning to supplement and replace all classroom teaching, homework assignments, examination preparation and project work. We here at GK Consultants will continue to work with students on their learning, school assignments and try to support each of them in terms of organisation, time management and other guidance as needed. Intensive support for IGCSE, A Level, SAT, ACT, AP and IB examinations will continue as we approach crucial dates during these next few months. Homeschooling programmes will continue as before.

       

      GK Consultants will continue to operate as follows:

       

      • Students can have their tutorials delivered either in person or by an online learning interface such as Skype or Zoom. Remote methods of teaching and learning work well, and we have used online teaching and learning techniques for many years. Online tutorials are scheduled at the same time as their face-to-face counterparts or can be rescheduled if an alternative time is convenient for the student and the tutor.

       

      At GK Consultants we are always here to discuss all matters relating to your son’s or your daughter’s education. Just because we are dealing with a health crisis does not mean that education is interrupted – you child’s future is as important today as it ever was.

      We look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions and let us all hope that the situation improves soon and we will be able to look back on this current pandemic in terms such as, “Do you remember when……...”

      Best wishes to you all: I, my academic team and administrative team wish you and your family a happy, healthy, safe, and successful 2021.
