You're mixing up GED and GRE. GED is akin to a high-school diploma, GRE is akin to an SAT for grad school.

Good luck, just be sure to keep up on those college classes :)

ya the instructors are letting the homework slide fo ra few days because i have 0 time.

but on the first 3 i got 99%, 99%, and 86% science, social studies, and reading respectively.

the 86% i blame on RETARDED questions that do NOT relate to the story. (EX. Would this knight be found in present day smoking in a bar or gathering people for the mental health of his squire?) (When he valiantly defeated a dragon in the story)

PS, that is a significantly significant retooling of a question because if i say a question then they'll shred my GED and ban me.

The reading questions. Actually I'd be careful - they can very well have answers inside the story and those questions tend to be a lot more telling than most other stuff about your actual study capabilities.

a) There might be a similar situation in the story - the knight might have been in a tavern, but refused to drink b) there might be various character traits noted down, which you have to apply to the questions.

I'm not trying to be a troll, but as someone who dropped out of High school at 16 and earned my GED at 17, I have some advice for you. STAY IN SCHOOL. Get your diploma. seriously. For the last four years since I dropped out I have struggled. I enlisted and was barley able to do that because of the GED. Even being in the military I also have a shitty 2nd job unloading trucks until 3 am. I barley make enough to pay my rent and other mandatory items.I am not stupid either. I have an AA and scored a 1240 on my SAT. But companies and schools simply look down on the GED. Im not saying that it will forever hold you back, but will for sure slow you down in your first few years of adulthood. If I were you I would go back to HS while you still can. Just my two cents

Maybe he's not officially enrolled in a college or university yet.

The guy is in Idaho, so I imagine he is "technically" enrolled.

While he may be enrolled, he may not be allowed to take other classes until he has passed some kind of placement test.
