Adult & Community Education School
Adult & Community Education school is offering free official GED® practice tests on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Sept. 10 from 5--8:30 p.m.
All area residents 16 years of age or older (who do not have a high school diploma and are not currently enrolled in school) are welcome to participate. ACE Principal Barbara Van Camp explains, "The practicte tests provide an accurate indication of how close you might be to passing the GED® and if not, what area(s) you need to concentrate."
The tests will be scored and explained on the day of the event. Persons passing the GED® earn a Florida High School Diploma. During the event, participants can take up to three of the five section tests required on the GED®: Writing, Reading, Math, Social Studies and Science.
Anyone who scores 520 or greater on all five section tests will be able to register for the GED® free! No registration is necessary to participate in the practice tests and there is no obligation.
However, participants who discover they need to focus on one or more areas can register for special classes ($30 semester) offered by the school at the event. Van Camp said, "We are encouraging everyone who has ever thought of taking the GED® to come on out and try it!
The test changes at the end of the year. This means anyone who has already passed a portion of the test will lose their scores if they don't go ahead and pass all sections. In addition, the updated test will reflect the increased national high school standards and require a little more math than the current version."
Interested persons should come to Adult & Community Education's campus, located at 283 Trojan Trail at the start time. The school is near Lincoln High School on Trojan Trail off Connor Blvd. across from the main entrance to Tom Brown Park.
