GED for WKAEN (West Kern Adult Education Network) Students

The GED test is a four-subject high school equivalency test that measures skills required by high schools and requested by colleges and employers. The four subjects are Science, Social Studies, Mathematical Reasoning, and Reasoning through Language Arts. After you pass the GED test, your diploma or credential will be issued by your state but you’ll receive a GED transcript to apply to college, start training, or obtain better employment.
