  1. Hi, I´m not really sure if I understand, but does the person need to be a native American or a Canadian citizen to be able to take this test? Or can it be anyone from around the world?. Thank you.


  2. Hey, I was curious about if this was an online test or if i go to a place in my city for it? How long is prep usually for the test? I am also getting an educational evaluation soon enough, if i come up to have a learning disability is there aids in place for me ?

    1. Hello – you cannot take the GED online! Any website that offers a GED certificate online is a fraud. Your test preparation time will depend on how well you understand the material. Yes there are accommodations for student with disability/challenges. Talk to your school or college.
