In this clip I'm going to be talking about age limits for the GED. The minimum age required to take the GED is sixteen nationwide, however, many states do require that you are eighteen or older in order to take it. Most of these states do offer waivers for students who are sixteen and seventeen who want to take the test. There is no upper age limit. However, take the test now. If you're younger, you have the information fresh in your mind, and you're more likely to be able to pass the test. So even if you are older, do not be discouraged. You do have more life experience in many of the things that are present on this exam. Do call on your general, day to day experience. Getting your GED will just make your resume even stronger, and give you more opportunities to advance your career.
