I guess I have no longer an excuse for being a German

I just got my GED TABE Battery Test Results back.

Language:
Capitalization 100
Paragraph Development 100
Writing Conventions 71
Usage 100 (AACK! My excuse just went out the window )
Punctuation 56
----------------
Average 89
Grade Equivalent 12.9 +
National Percentile 93 (pretty darn good, huh? I guess this is almost like actually being a native speaker?)

Reading:
Construct Meaning 92 (not a 100 so sometimes I'm off LOL )
Words in Context 100 (NOOOO!!!! I need my excuse!!!)
Recall Information 93
Evaluate/Extend Meaning 92
Interpret Graphic Information 80 (AHA!)
--------------------------------
Average 92
Grade Equivalent 12.9
National Percentile 92


As for Math, I need to brush up my computation skills and learn the English Math Terminology which is why I scored not as well as I should have.
As for Applied Math, I got a 10.1 with a 100 in Data Analysis and a 100 in Estimation and let's not talk about the lowest with was Number Operations.

I gave myself until April to take the GED test and signed up for morning and afternoon classes starting next Tuesday.

That is fantastic! I went to school with a woman from Brazil and one from France, both living in this country over 15 years and very well educated in their own country, but still they had a great deal of difficulty at our community college, I know this is not easy. If you do well enough, is a university in your future?

Yes, I would like to go to a college or university which is why I'm taking the GED.

It isn't easy because the Language test is based off of your general vocabulary and not about specialties. There is still a great deal I don't know. In the EMT class I had the problem with the human bodyparts that I had re-learn all of them with the English meaning, just like I am going to have to do with math.

Yeah, that is how I felt yesterday hahaha because I had no idea what they wanted from me with all those weird terms

But I'll get those skills brushed up.

One thing I noticed, from listening to others comparing their results, is that my Language, Reading and Math skills were by far among the best. I was surprised how lowly some of the younger adults scored and thought they were actually good with a score of 8 in Language or not that bad with a score of 3 in Math.
I have a score of 6.1 in Math Computation and thought I royally failed because you need at least an 11 to pass the GED.
