How to Pass the Indiana Graduation Qualifying Exam (GQE)

The Graduation Qualifying Exam (GQE) is a test that high school students in Indiana must pass to earn their high school diploma.

The GQE test usually comes up towards the end of the year and students are eligible to take the test for the first time in their second year of high school. If the student fails to pass GQE at this first attempt, they would still have at least four more chances to retake and pass the test (March and September of junior and senior school years).
