    I R Smart.

    I took the math and writing sections of the GED test yesterday. I'm taking these test cold with no studying (since I dropped out of high school in 1979). Math is my most suspect subject and I got a 620 (88th percentile) but when it comes to writing I guess there is no substitute for being (somewhat) well read because I ranked in the 99th percentile with a 750 (800 is the max score you can receive). Next week I take science, social studies, and reading then I'll be a 51 year old with a GED. Yay.

    Well, you're probably still smarter than a 5th grader

    My friend you are a fantastic illustration of the difference between "going to school" and "being educated". Proud to know you.

    Not trying to get this sent to PO but the essay part of the test was on the question "What has been a positive change in your life?" The two poor souls that had to read/grade my essay got the Gospel of Jesus Christ, straight, no chaser.

    Good for you BMX! If you hadn't taken the test, then next week you would still have been a 51 year old only without a GED so that is a win in my book. And I agree with Creaky, there is a difference between "going to school" and "being educated". Congratulations!

    I bet that you actually hired a ringer to take the test for you.
