What is the GED?

The General Education Diploma is an American alternative to the CAPS curriculum for leaners who still want a qualification equivalent to a metric (national senior certificate). The leaners who attend the Shelanti GED Center Of Excellence will follow a Homeschool curriculum until they are of the legal age (17) to write the GED Test. The exams will be written at your nearest Boston College Campus or any other GED testing center. The cost is dependent on the exchange rate: $75 +- R1100. Your tutor will confirm when you are ready to write your exams. Exam bookings are available online via the GED website. The GED consists of 4 exams: English: reading and writing, math, social studies and science. More Info?
