What is the GED ®?
The GED® credential originates in the USA and shows that the candidate has the same general level of academic achievement as a typical high school graduate.
The GED® exam is internationally recognised as a high school leavers equivalent! This is good news for both adults or homeschoolers who did not get their Matric and allows them to seek employment or education both locally AND internationally!
Can I get into a SA College or University with a GED® Credential?
The GED® credential is a foreign Matric and equivalent to a South African Grade 12. SAQA issues a Certificate of Evaluation for the GED credential as an NQ4 level or South African National Senior Certificate. It is also recognised by Universities South Africa ( formally HESA) who issue a foreign conditional exemption. To be accepted by UNISA
or university in South Africa you will need to do SAT and GED® or just a GED® accompanied by a letter of admission from a US university. The GED® credential is a cost effective solution for both home schooled students or adults needing a Matric equivalent in a short period of time!
