Diploma
A high school diploma or its alternative, the GED (General Education Development), represents the bottom rung of the education ladder and without it, few jobs paying above minimum wage are on offer. It is also the minimum requirement for entry to the world of tertiary education.

The high school diploma is acquired on successful completion of the courses and exams set during the final period of a student's time at high school. Those who acquire sufficient points 'graduate' while those who fail to do so through academic deficiency, receive a certificate of attendance instead. Conversely, students with a high Grade Point Average (GPA) can graduate with honors if they also complete certain extra courses.

A GED can be obtained at any time in one's life after the age of 16. It involves formally sitting and passing 5 principal subjects - reading, writing, social studies, science, and math - at one of the 3,200+ special centers distributed throughout the US. In some states these tests are free, but in others it may cost up to $100 or more.

Having a diploma is mandatory for most jobs with any level of responsibility.
