Get Your GED
The General Educational Development (GED) is an international high school equivalency testing program for adults. It is a series of five tests in Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science. The GED test is an option for adults who did not graduate from high school.

The GED versus a High School Diploma?
To decide which option is the right option for you, think first about what you'd like to do once you have your GED. If you are thinking about college or university, check with them first to confirm that they will accept the GED as a prerequisite for the program you are interested in. If you want your GED for employment purposes, it's a good idea to make sure that employers in that field recognize the GED as a high school equivalency. Nova Scotia Works centres across the province are equipped to help you with this important decision.
