3.jpg

Jacqueline Malpica Davila earned her National Diploma in 2017. She recently graduated from college with a major in Business Management. It's success stories like Jacqueline's that inspire students to never give up on a dream.

Read Jacqueline’s story here:

My name is Jacqueline Malpica Davila. I am 46 years old. My life has never been sunshine and rainbows, but I have come a long way. At the age of 16, I had to leave school. At that time, you were not allowed to be in school if you were pregnant. After that, my life got more and more challenging. I thought I would never get to walk across a stage to receive a diploma. Decades later, I decided to enroll in an ESL class with Newport News Adult Education. After a lot of hard work, my English was strong enough to do more. Someone told me about an adult education program where I would receive a high school diploma upon completion of the program: the National External Diploma Program. Suddenly I felt there was an opportunity for me after all. I completed the program in 2017, and in August 2017, I got to walk across that stage! Then I knew there was more for me out there just waiting. I knew about Centura College, because two of my kids had attended previously. I didn’t think I was ready to take the next step. I kept telling my daughter that I wanted more. I wanted a college degree. We kept talking about it. Suddenly, I received a phone call from a Centura College representative. I looked at my daughter and quickly realized she had filled out a quick information guide online, and someone was calling within minutes. I decided to take the plunge. Now, here I am graduating with an Associate’s Degree in Business Management from Centura College. It has been tough. Sometimes, I thought about giving up, but my family kept pushing me. They told me how amazing it would feel to finally get to do something for me and only me. Now I get to graduate Suma Cum Laude. I did it!! I made it!!
Here I am standing tall as a college graduate!

GED® Score Change

The passing score for the GED® test is now 145 instead of 150.

What this means for you:

  • If you’ve started taking the GED® test – or are thinking about it – this is great news!
    You’re more likely than ever to earn your diploma! You now have to score 145 (instead of 150) on each test subject to pass.
     
  • You won’t see your passing status reflected on your score report until March 1.
    While this score change is effective immediately, your score report won’t be updated until March 1. Just know that if you earn a 145 or higher on any test subject, you passed!
     
  • If you scored between 145-149 on a GED® test subject in the past, your status has changed from fail to pass.
    Check your email (be sure to check your spam folder too) for a message from MyGED®
     
  • There are now three score levels you can earn on your test.
    GED® Passing Score (145-164), GED® College Ready (165-174), and GED® College Ready + Credit (175-200). You’ll see these score levels on your score report starting March 1.
