General Educational Development, The GED is an educational certificate awarded in the United States and Canada which certifies that the recipient has met the minimum requirements necessary to graduate high school.
A Brief History of GED: After the world war, The US Armed forces Institute made request to provide a series of tests so that knowledge and education level of the soldiers who want to continue their education can be tested. The idea is to facilitate soldiers who have joined US Armed Forces before finishing high school.
Originally developed for military personnel, The GED is now the only hope for those who want to complete their education or get job where high school certificate is required, the demand is increasing due to the poor academic environment. People who from any reason, social, family or economical do not get chance to complete their education, GED is the only hope for them. Without GED people looking to continue their education was to go back to high school, which is not realistic option in many cases.
However improvement in the test is still going on to meet the requirement of the modern job market.
