GED Age Requirements To take the Ohio GED test, you must be officially withdrawn from school and be 19 years of age or older. Exceptions to the age requirement may be granted if:

You are 18 years of age -

Have the Superintendent (or designee) of the school district where you last attended (or the district where you live) complete and sign the GED Age Waiver Form. Attach it to your paper application or to the confirmation page from your online application.

You are 18 years of age AND your class has graduated -

Attach an Official School Transcript to your application to show that your class has graduated. If you have been sworn into active military service in one of the armed forces, attach a sworn statement to your application giving the date of the swearing-in ceremony. (Delayed entry candidates do not qualify.)

You are at least 16 years of age, but less than 18 years of age -

The Superintendent (or designee) of the school district where you last attended (or the district where you live) must complete and sign the GED Age Waiver Form. A parent, guardian or court official must sign the GED Parental Consent Form. Attach both forms to your paper application or to the confirmation page from your online application.

For more information, see the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC), section 3301-41-01, Standard for issuing an "Ohio High School Equivalence Diploma" located at http://codes.ohio.gov/. Superintendents may click here for a printable PDF fact sheet about using GED's Web-based system that also contains the OAC section.

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 can't test out of a test. Taking a test is taking a test. If you meant can you test out of school with a GED, the answer is yes, as long as you're old enough (depends on your state). To locate your nearest GED testing center:http://www.acenet.edu/resources/GED/center_locator.cfm

At this age, you would benefit by obtaining a GED. Take the evaluation test to see if you need to take classes in the five areas before taking the tests that you have to pass for the GED.

I think 16. If not then 17 for sure. In most cases, states require you to be at least 16 before taking the test. More importantly, you have to be out of school for at least 1 year before taking the test. Therefore, you cannot drop out of high school one day and go to take the test the following day.

In Mexico it is not accepted and one needs to take their equivalent to the test instead, which can only be taken when you are at least 21 years old. The Mexican GED is called 'ceneval'.

No, you must be at least 17 to take the Colorado GED exam.

Don't discount what you have learned in life! Go take the GED pre-test and find out what you know. Then, take any classes you need and then take the GED test. From there, you can take any college level classes you would like. Public school is not available after age 22.

I think you have to be 16 years old.

I think it depends on how old you are. 28 you have to be 17 or older to take the GED, but you dont have to take any prep courses, you can just schedule the test and go in and take it. But you might want to take a few prep courses! Good Luck!

If you can test for and get your GED, you could. As a 9th grader without a GED or Diploma, no. NO branch of the military will accept anyone who doesn't have at the minimum a GED.
