I’m currently writing an ebook named How to Pass the GED test (I’ll be selling it on this website in less than a month.) And in that process I found a disturbing statistic from 2009.
1 out of 100 High School Dropouts Pass the GED Test
Don’t take my word for it, read what the GED Testing Service wrote about this fact.
In other words, of all adults who lack a high school credential, only approximately two out of every 100 attempted to take the GED Test, and one out of every 100 passed the GED Test.
If you’d like to read this scary statistic for yourself, you can find it on page 10 of the 2009 GED Testing Program Statistical Report.
But are you really a 100:1 long shot on passing the GED?
Statistically, the answer is yes.
There are approximately 30 millions Americans older than 18 who don’t have a high school degree. The number of Americans who pass the GED test every year is so small by comparison that the odds are 100:1.
But Passing the GED is Self Selecting
What does that mean?
It means that if you just sit on the front steps of your house this summertime enjoying the cool breezes, the odds are 100:1 that you’ll pass the GED test this year.
- But if you get off the front steps and visit a community college asking for GED help, you’re selecting a path that improves the odds that you’ll pass the GED test.
- If you actually join a GED study group you’ve improved your odds of passing the GED.
- If you study 6 days a week for 1 hour each day, your odds are improving.
Be the Long Shot, Pass the GED Test
You really can pass the GED test. It’s up to you.
The visitors to this website are slightly declining and I was wondering why. But its June, 2011 so I think I know the answer. It’s summer, people are sitting on their porches enjoying the evening, taking summers off just as they did when they were in high school.
