GED Exam Preparation




Equivalency and GED Testing
The GED test battery consists of multiple-choice tests in writing, social studies, science, mathematics, and reading.
If you pass all the tests, you will receive a statement of your GED exam marks and your high school equivalency diploma. Many employers accept the GED in place of a regular high school diploma and some post-secondary institutions accept the GED as a high school diploma equivalent. Call your post-secondary institute of choice to determine whether they will accept the GED.
Although GED is an alternative method of obtaining a high school equivalency diploma, it is not always accepted in lieu of Alberta Education credit courses for admission to higher education at post-secondary institutions, including post-secondary programs offered at NorQuest College. If you intend to apply to a post-secondary program, check with the institution to see whether GED is acceptable in lieu of academic credit course work.
