GED Trivia: Did you know that 60% of high school graduates cannot pass the GED? The GED is a hard test and that is why classes to prepare for it are often essential to success. Also, new data suggest that “GED graduates are in a much stronger position to compete with traditional high school graduates, especially after earning a certificate or degree in addition to a GED credential,” the GED Testing Service said in a statement.
