16; you have to register prior to taking the GED and obtain parent/guardian signatures on a registration form. I'm not sure where this form is made available, but you could probably look online with Ohio's State Dept. of Education.
I took it when i was 15, so it's mainly grade-based. Usually Sophmores take it in the spring...
You cannot take the GED test until the other individuals that are your age are graduating from high school.
