20 interesting ideas for GED essay topics

GED essay topics can come in all different varieties. If you intend to write this test, it helps to have some experience with these types so you can know ahead of time which ones suit you best and which ones may take more than the allotted time to compete successfully. Bear the following in mind:

  • Does the essay require you to know things that you can’t learn under exam conditions?
  • Are you required to analyse subject matter that makes you nervous or uncomfortable?
  • Is this a topic that is likely to cause you to write something you will regret?
