MOUNT VERNON — Ohio Means Jobs/Knox Center has had a flurry of activity recently in its GED preparation classes, with four students successfully obtaining GED diplomas in just a two week period in April.

The GED test is comprised of four exams in the areas of Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics. Students are given practice tests when they enter the program letting staff know what areas the student needs to study. The teachers then tutor the students step by step in each test area. Once a student is ready to take one of the actual GED tests, the center works with the student to schedule them for a test. There are no tuition charges to students for the classes or practice tests. If a student is eligible, the center will even pay their examination fees.
