Where Can Ged Be Written At Age 16?
Q: My 15, almost 16, daughter is bored with school. I had her tested with
a pre-GED and she scored at 12.9 . However, she cannot write the GED in
Texas (and hence go to college) until she is 17. Does anyone know of a
state or province that allows the GED at 16, and what the residency
requirments might be?? What about leadds where I might find this ing
out, school counsellor or listserv?
A:You should get the kid out of school before they completely destroy her. Here in California the age to take the California High school Proficiency Examination is 16. The CHSPE is counted as the equivalent of a high school diploma in all respencts in the state (I don't know if there is some sort of mutual agreement among the states nor which, if any, would be parties to this accord.) However, the CHSPE is not a GED. In CA, it is considered superior to the GED, and is valid for admission to all state Us and colleges. (Whether this is the de facto case or not, I don't know. None of my kids has ever had any trouble.) My nephew took it by registering in CA from his grandmother's house. He is German, born and reared. Passed first time, as have all mine. You have to be in the 50th percentile of all those who take the test on the day you do to pass.
