Ged Testing Locations
Q: am a conditional permanent resident, my wife a USC. I was granted AOS
from H1B to CR6 this year.
I have a 14 year old daughter who is a UK citizen, living with her mum
in the UK.
My daughter visits me here in the US, and on a recent trip we talked
about her going to College and University here when she finishes high
school in the UK.
I plan to become a USC when I qualify.
Can my wife file a petition based on my daughter being her step-
daughter? Is it better to wait until I am a USC instead?
My daughter needs to finish high school (16) before moving here,
but I'd like a smooth transition from her finishing school one
academic year to starting school here the next.
When should I apply for her to join me here? I am presuming this
is better than her applying for a VISA to study here.
A:Another option is to take the GED. I cannot remember what GED stands for but it is the high school diploma equivalency exam. From what I have heard it is ridiculously easy to pass. She could go straight to college at age 16 if she passes the GED. I don't think I would recommend that. Two years in that age range is a big difference -- she would really be a lot younger than everyone else in college. I was friends in high school with a girl who was two years younger than the rest of us -- she graduated high school at age 16. I think she had quite a difficult time in school -- not academically but in terms of social development. I think if it were my daughter I would have her go to high school here -- to get used to American culture if nothing else. If she is academically inclined or just finds herself more advanced in knowledge due to her UK education, she can take honors and/or AP classes as a previous poster suggested which will hopefully keep her interested. Also, I think American high schools place a greater emphasis on teamwork/group projects and that may be interesting for her as well. I went through the American high school system and I did take a number of AP courses along with the exams. I went into college with nearly a year's worth of college credits as a result. This enabled me to graduate in 3 years instead of 4 years, saving a year of college tuition money.
