This GED RLA practice test aims to help you prepare for the actual test and anticipate the kinds of questions you might come across during the test.
Why You Need to Prepare for the GED RLA Test
- Increase your chances of passing the GED test.
The reason you need to prepare for the GED RLA Test is to increase your chances of passing the exam. The test is graded in two ways. First, they get the scores for each subject then they get the total score across all 4 subjects covered by the GED test. You need to get a score of 145 on each subject and your total score on all all 4 subjects must be at least 580.
This means that you need to prepare for all subjects. Even if you do well on the other 3 subjects, you will still not receive your GED credential if you fail to pass the GED RLA test with a score of at least 145.
- Score higher on the test.
Another good reason to prepare for the GED RLA test is to increase your chances of scoring higher on the test. Your score matters especially if you are using your GED credential to apply to college or university. Most universities require you to get higher than the passing score. The University of Oregon for example only accepts a total score of 680 or higher if you received your GED after December 2013.
- Boost your confidence.
If you havenâ€™t been in school for a while, preparing for the GED RLA Test gives you another advantage: it increases your confidence as it improves your English and language skills. Both skills are useful in any job because it makes you write and communicate better. The ability to communicate clearly is a skill that employers in all industries appreciate.
