I am currently 20 years old, married, with a 1 year old baby girl.
I dropped out of High School due to family issues.
After I dropped out of High School, Immediately I went into GED classes for a couple of months. Throughout the year of 2013 I took Reading, writing, science and social studies GED test. I passed all 4 out of 5 test. I just had math. I studied for the math and even took practice test. I was doing pretty well and even got to the 410 on the practice, which is all I needed. I took the math test 2 ties and failed. I got a 370 and 390. I just had one more time to take the math to pass and get my diploma. I prayed and even my family prayed for me to try my best and pass.
I tried so hard and even found the right answers on the calculator. When I checked my GED math score, I failed. I got a 390.
I am just so bummed. Now I have no diploma. How am I ever going to get a job or a career? I can't go to College without a Diploma or GED.
I really do not want to have to take all 5 test again. I wasted over $300. I feel so stupid. I wanted to get my GED so bad, not only for me but for my daughter so that way she can say bother her parents graduated.
My husband is very supportive. he told me not to worry and to just take care of our daughter.
Do you think everything will be ok? Do I really need that GED? Should I try again in a couple of years?

I would never be able to rely on someone else to take care of me. So although your husband is telling you not to worry about it, for you own financial security I would try again. I know how frustrating it must be to have to take all the tests again but if it's really what you want why wouldn't you do it? If you honestly don't care than don't do it but only you know the answer to that.
