What is GED?

GED stands for General Educational Development. GED test comprises of four academic subject tests. The main aim of GED is to certify that a candidate possesses high school-level academic skills. In other words, it is an alternative to the high school diploma in USA.

This is where GED comes handy! It is an alternative to high school diploma! Many colleges are known to accept candidates who possess GED certification. GED certification shows that the candidate possesses high school-level academic skills and knowledge, even though he/she doesn’t have a high school diploma.


GED exam tests a candidate in areas such as – language arts, science, social studies and mathematical reasoning. With a good GED score and no high school diploma, you may still secure admission into a good public health college/university!


GED score required for public health admission

It is difficult to define a specific ‘required’ GED score that will ensure your admission. The required score depends upon the type of the degree that you want, type of the college you want and other factors. A candidate must score at least 145 marks in each test to get GED certified. If you fail to score the minimum score in any test, you will have to retake the test. To secure admission into a good public health university, try to score more than 170 in each test.
