Here's all you need to know before you start a GED program...
Our organization offers a wide range of highly flexible GED programs. There are several options available to you if you want to start your GED as our goal is to accommodate as many students as possible. Indeed, our programs are designed for different lifestyles. Whether you work full-time or part-time or whether you are a parent with a busy household, we certainly have the right program for you to balance family, work, and studies.
Step 1: Choose the Right Program
You have the option to do the GED online or in class as a part-time or a full-time student. It is possible to combine the part-time GED and online courses. It all depends on your preferences and your schedule.
Step 2: Assess Your Abilities
First, be aware that anyone wishing to return to school must be tested beforehand. The initial test, which evaluates your math, your grammar, and your reading skills, is only a formality that will allow your teacher to determine at which level you sit and determine the books you will need. This test will also allow us to monitor your progress.
Step 3: Learn at Your Own Pace
Second, the beauty of adult education is that you have the chance to evolve at your own pace. Indeed, unlike regular schools system, if you have more difficulties with math, you can take the time you need to understand the subject matter, all supervised by passionate and dedicated teachers. So, depending on your pace and the type of program, you can complete your GED in the period of time that you need.
Specifications for the GED Program…
Also, we would like to specify that programs just like the GED test are completely FREE!!! You do not have to pay anything to enroll in the program or to take the GED test when you feel ready to do so. Financial assistance is also available for some people through the province with the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labor.
Note that the GED includes 5 different topics... math, grammar, reading, science, and social studies. In terms of the first three subjects, they are very similar to what is presented in regular schools. On the other hand, regarding science and social studies, it is not quite the same thing. Rather, they are reading based and cover various subjects related to science and social studies and then you have to answer questions testing your understanding.
Step 4: GED Test
Regarding the GED test, the province of New Brunswick sets several dates for the test. A schedule is set in advance and when you feel ready you can reserve your seat by filling out a form that will then be sent to the Fredericton office.
Additionally, something that is new is that you can now write your GED test one topic at a time. This new way of doing things is very interesting. Previously, a student who had a little more difficulty, for example, with his math, might spend a lot of time studying math and focus just on math topic. When he wanted to write the GED test, he was more than ready to pass the math, but was perhaps a little less ready for other four subjects, thus causing anxiety. This new approach will allow students who wish to take their exam one topic at a time to do so and decrease the anxiety in preparing for the GED test.
Finally, be aware that when you pass a subject, you do not have to do it again. Indeed, if you decide to start your GED full-time and you have already passed your math, grammar and reading successfully, you will only have two subjects to finish before graduating. That being said, even if you find a new job and you leave the program to go to work full time, but after 5 years you want to come back to finish what you started, you can do it. Nothing is lost! You still have two subjects to finish before you graduate, in this case the sciences and the social studies.
