People will usually get their GED when they have been homeschooled all their life. Or dropped out of high school... or simply, people who take their GED usually have not gotten a high school diploma. The GED score will replace the diploma and can get said person into College.

People usually get their GED if they did not graduate high school... the score kind of replaces your high school diploma...

People also take it when they have been homeschooled and want to get into College. It proves that they have been learning and are at the right level to enter College.
