Chapter 3: How do GEDs work?
The process of obtaining a GED is really not that difficult. The hardest part of the whole process is being motivated enough to sit down and force yourself to study. Chances are that if you are an adult you have forgotten a lot of things that you learned when you were last in school.
Once you are confident in your ability to take and pass the test you will need to go to a testing facility where you will then take the GED exam. The GED is a little different than most other tests and the scoring is a bit different as well. It can be a bit confusing for some people how the whole thing works.
The following chapter will shed light on the basics of how GED test scores work and how the whole testing process works in general. These are important details so you should make sure to pay close attention.
How it Works
The GED test is just like any other test whereas you have to get a certain score in order to either pass or fail the course. What is different about this test is the fact that you are not graded on each specific test by itself but rather the entire exam. The term for this is a battery score. In order for you to pass the test you will have to have an average score between all subjects that meets a certain set standard. This comes along with benefits and disadvantages. An example of a benefit that this brings would be the fact that you can help raise your battery score with the subjects you are best at. An example of a negative impact this causes would be the fact that you can lower your battery score with subjects you are not that good in. Along with the battery score for the entire test, an individual taking the GED exam must also have a score above a set standard on each course alone.Other Details
