How do I know if I'm ready to take the GED test?

  • You have to be able to read, compute, interpret information and express yourself in writing on a level comparable to that of the top 60% of graduating high school seniors.
  • If you are uncertain whether you have the level of skill needed to successfully complete the test, College of Western Idaho offers free classes to help you improve your skills in reading, math and language through ABE. These classes are free to students 16 years and older who are not currently enrolled in high school. Learn more about how the ABE program can assist you in preparing for your GED.
