There is only one way to take the General Educational Development (GED) test — in person at an official GED testing center.
Yet the American Council on Education (ACE) is warning the public that fake GED testing services are increasingly popping up, generating complaints from a number of people who have paid hefty fees to take the bogus exams.
The GED test measures the test-takers’ knowledge of high school subjects — language arts, social studies, science and mathematics. A successful score on the test leads to a certificate which can be used in place of a high school diploma. In California and some other states, a GED certificate is sufficient for enrolling in an accredited online degree program or traditional college. It can also be used to meet the qualification for jobs with a minimum educational requirement of a high school diploma.
In order to take the official GED test, the ACE has provided a testing center locator for potential test-takers to use to locate the nearest test center. The test is available in locations throughout the U.S. and in a number of places all over the world.
So again, watch out for those that are peddling the online and correspondence GED test; it is a scam.
