The GED Tests can help you move on to the next level such as college, technical training, or a better job. For most employers, colleges and universities, and branches of the military, passing the GED Tests proves that you are ready to meet the challenge.

The Arkansas GED Testing Program serves all Arkansans who are 16 years or older, not enrolled in or graduated from high school, and who meet other state requirements regarding residency and testing eligibility.

The GED credential is based on five tests. The tests cover reading, writing, social studies, science, and mathematics. The tests also measure communication, information-processing, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills. The GED Tests are designed to measure whether adults can demonstrate the competencies, skills, and knowledge equivalent of a high school graduate. The GED Tests are a nationally recognized measure of high school knowledge and skills.
