How does GEDsxm GED program work?

GEDsxm has designed a GED program that is specifically geared towards the St. Maarten public. You can take your courses one at a time or all at the same time. In addition you can take your official exams every week.

How do I sign up and get started?

To sign up for classes, you need to fill in the application form and pay your $30 application fee. You will then be scheduled to take our placement test in English and Mathematics. This will allow us to advise you as to what classes that you need to take.

Why do I need to take a placement test?

Mathematics and English form the basis of all subjects in the GED. Over the years we have seen that starting a student at the appropriate level of the skills leads to better results and save the student time.

What if I fail the placement test?

Don't worry. Some of our students that have performed the best in the actual GED exam failed the placement test. If you do not pass the placement test, we will begin your training from the beginning (in the subject that you failed).

This will allow us to fix the weakness that you might have before you begin the actual GED content.

How long does the course take?

The length of time that it takes you to get your GED diploma can vary from 3 months to 6 months depending on the courses that you need to get ready. This is based on the results of your placement test.

Of course if you already know the GED content, you can take the official exam without taking classes.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the program depends on the number of courses that you need in order to get prepared. The placement test allows us to know the courses that you need. You do not need to pay for your complete course in full since you can take one course at a time.

Different courses have different duration and therefore, their cost vary. Contact us for a full breakdown of the description, length and cost of all our courses.
