Responses: 529



I took my first GED test 5/19/2012 I passed everything but math even though my total score was above average high score I got 380 in math. I was so disappointed b/c I was confident that I would pass. But I took the math test over on 10/17/2013 and I feel like I did so much better but I'm scared of my results. I really don't Want to fail and take the new GED test in 2014. I can only pray for now And have faith. My results should be here soon!! OMG!

Essay and math

I just found out by a fluke I had not gotten my diploma and wasn't going to wait for the new ged to come out to get it all resolved and go back to school. I studied very little, only taking two pretests in science, writing and math. There is a contemporary ged test by Tom hawks or something that is very similar to the ged. I didn't cram studying for the subjects I tested for. I did the practice tests for the science but did the reading. Next time did the practice for writing but did social studies, etc. start with your easiest subject first for a confidence boost and don't stress on the math too hard, it only makes the test feel impossible and you are just setting yourself up to fail if you do. I took all tests in a week and a half and passed all the first round. 500 on math 540 on writing 580 on science 620 on reading and 660 in social studies. I last went to school twenty years ago. Don't let your head be your worst enemy. Listen to some music relax and go conquer that test. Good luc

Excited but Nervous

I took the official practice tests for all of the subjects and I'm excited to say that I'm able to take the official GED test next week! These are my scores for the practice tests: Science - 490, Social Studies - 550, Writing I & II - 650, Reading - 450, and Math - 440. My teacher says I'm ready! Even though I feel like I can improve a little better on Math and Reading. I got the weekend to study a little bit more. I was pretty shocked when I found out what my scores were. I'm truly feeling confident about myself now than before. 2014 is right around the corner. Get it done! Just study, study, study! It will pay off, big time. :D Good luck everyone!

I'm disappointed in me!

I'm taking my 6 test on Dec4. I always been horrible at math now got a tutor but is so embarrassing and ashame! But can give up this is my last try!

I been in class for my GED for about a year and 3 months. All my skillz increased. Taking my Math was most dissapointing. But it aint over yet . I have to retake 2 exams, Math and Science to boost my current 1770 total with two scores of 410 or more. KEEP FIGHTING. GET KNOCKED DOWN. GET UP AND FINISH !!!

Ged test

I took three test last month 10/14/13 and i passed them with a decent score. I took my math test and writing yesterday. I have to wait five days for the results of my essay. But i'm pretty sure i passed it. I failed math it was my first time taking it. I've never been good at it. And i studied out of two books for months. So it was disappointing not passing. I'm going to redo the math test sometime next month. I don't have much time though with the new test coming out in January.
