Madiha,

Well, you need a total of 70 more points. Looking at your scores, math is likely one of the most difficult to raise. Reading is your highest score, and the higher the score, the more tough it can be to raise. Science and social studies, though, both uses similar skills and similar kinds of questions, just on different subject matter. The core of science and social studies is critical reading and thinking skills... understanding what you read, analyzing it, and applying it. Studying these subjects is complementary to each other, so they're easy to study together. I'd recommend trying to take these two tests over again, to see if you can raise both scores. Be sure you study with GED practice questions, and focus on critical reading and thinking skills.

The other test you might retake is writing. Now, writing is a special case, because the essay makes a big difference in your score. If your essay was a 2 or a 2.5, I would definitely take writing again. If you can raise your essay score by one or a half a point, you can boost your writing score a lot. If you focus on learning to write a really good essay, you could make up a lot of points in writing. And it's definitely something that you can improve in a short amount of time!

Good luck,
Leonard

Madiha,

You can do a lot to practice for the GED essay. The best way is to learn what the GED scorers expect from an essay. The important elements of your essay are: a main idea that answers the prompt; a clear beginning, middle, and end; and details (like examples or stories from your life) that support your main idea. You should practice writing GED essays. Even though the topic won't be the same, practicing writing GED essays with a main idea, details, and a clear beginning, middle, and end will improve your performance.

You can learn more about the essay at this blog: http://www.passged.com/student_blogs/elizabeth/

There is also a lot of good information about the essay in the GED Smart study guide: http://www.passged.com/e-book.php

Because you don't know what question you'll get, it helps to brainstorm some ideas of things from your life that are important. This will help you get better at brainstorming and have some ideas at hand that might be relevant to your essay. Who are important people in your life, and why? Who do you admire? What were important events in your life, and what did they teach you? What places are important to you? What values are important to you, and how do they affect your life? What are your plans for the future, and why? What hobbies do you have, and what do they mean to you? What movies and music do you like, and why?
