December 27, 2021

If you want to pass your general education development (GED) test, you probably have a lot of questions about the process.

You may wonder what materials you need to study or how much time it will take to complete the test.

While it may seem like an overwhelming task, rest assured that anyone can pass their GED exams.

Here at AlphaLogic Career College, we believe in helping people obtain their high school credit courses even if they didn’t get to attend high school. By offering extensive GED test preparation, our students feel confident about their exams. If you’re ready to get your GED in Ontario, here’s everything you need to know about getting started.

What is on the GED exams?

If you live in Canada, there are several areas you need to study for the GED tests. You’ll need to be well-versed in reading, writing, science, math and social studies. While there are preparation materials available, it’s best to work with a tutor or take a class to ensure you’re educated. You can take in-person or online classes to review the information and even take example exams to help you prepare.

How do I sign up for the GED test?

You must be 18 years or older and will need to provide proof of identification to sign up for the exam. Book your test at least eight weeks ahead of time. You can sign up for a GED test either online or at a local college. If you need help signing up for the test, or require assistance during the exam for vision or hearing disabilities, contact the GED Testing Service.

How do I prepare for the GED?

You can either study on your own, take a GED course or do a little bit of both. That said, people who utilize a GED course tend to have a higher success rate. It’s a good idea to study all areas of the exam thoroughly and take several sample tests to see where you may need to do more studying.

What do I need to bring to my GED exam?

Make sure to bring your photo identification to your exam. You’ll also want to bring a pencil and some scratch paper in case you want to work on a mathematic problem before selecting an answer to a question. Also, bring some water and a small snack to ensure you stay hydrated and alert for your exam.

After you take your exam, you should get results within four to six weeks. If you haven’t received your results within six weeks of your exam, reach out to the GED Testing Service for information.

Preparing for the GED can feel overwhelming at times. But with enough time and preparation, you’ll be ready to pass your exam.
