Before you register for a GED test, you must insure that you meet your individual state, province or territories' eligibity requirements. In general, you are eligible to sit for the GED exams if you meet the following requirements:

  1. You are not currently enrolled/attending a high school
  2. You have not graduated from high school
  3. You are at least 16 years old
  4. You meet the requirements of the state, province or territory where you are testing. These requirements typically spell out age, residency and length of time since leaving school parameters.

For current high school students considering dripping out of school, it is recommended that you talk to your high school guidance counselor to understand the GED requirements and the academic skills required to pass the GED exams.
