About the ACT
The ACT is similar to the SAT, used to determine a student's readiness for college and merit-based scholarships. It is administered by ACT, a nonprofit organization of the same name. The ACT covers four academic skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and scientific reasoning. It also offers an optional direct writing test.
A high school student's score on the ACT is a data point that admissions counselors can use to compare the student to other applicants. The test is either two hours and 55 minutes long or three hours and 35 minutes long with the optional essay component.
It is accepted by most four-year colleges and universities in the United States and more than 225 universities outside of the U.S.

About the GED
These tests are designed to measure your proficiency in standard high-school subjects for anyone 16 or older not enrolled in high school. Rather than testing your memorization of specific facts, dates, or terms, the GED Test requires you to demonstrate applied knowledge and skills related to specific situations. Bypassing the GED Test, you will earn a high-school equivalency diploma.
The GED subtests—which take about seven hours total—cover the four primary high-school subjects. Tests are delivered on the computer (not online). Paper testing is only available as an accommodation. Check with the GED testing center in your area to learn about their specific testing procedures.
The GED Test, or General Educational Development Test, is made up of four tests; Reasoning Through Language Arts (RLA) is 150 minutes, Mathematical Reasoning is 115 minutes, Science is 90 minutes, and Social Studies is 70 minutes (Source: https://www.kaptest.com/ged/what-is-the-ged).
About the Praxis Tests
The Praxis Core tests are comprehensive assessments that measure the reading, writing, and mathematics skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs. These skills were deemed by teacher educators to be essential for all candidates preparing to be teachers, no matter what content area or grade level they aspire to teach.
The Praxis Core tests include objective response questions, such as single-selection selected-response questions, multiple-selection selected-response questions, and numeric-entry questions. The Writing test also includes two essay sections. The Praxis Core tests are delivered on the computer either in a test center or at home, and they may be taken either as three separate tests on separate days or as one combined test.
The Praxis Subject Tests measure knowledge of specific subjects that K–12 educators will teach, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills and knowledge. They include over 90 different tests, ranging from Agriculture to World Languages. Individuals entering the teaching profession take the Praxis Subject Tests as part of the teacher licensing and certification process required by states as well as by some professional associations and organizations.
The Praxis Subject tests range from 1 to 4 hours long and include selected-response questions, essay or constructed-response questions, or a combination of both. All tests (other than the Braille Proficiency test) are computer-delivered. They're administered in a test center or, for many of them, at home (Source: https://www.ets.org/praxis/site/states-agencies/about/test-overview.html).
About the AP Tests
The AP Program offers college-level courses and exams that you can take in high school. Taking AP courses and exams in high school could give you an advantage in college by letting you: Your AP score could earn you college credits before you even set foot on campus. In fact, most AP students who enroll in four-year colleges start school with some credit. Earning credit or placement can open up time on your schedule or even let you graduate early. “AP” on your high school transcript shows colleges you're motivated to succeed, and taking the exam demonstrates your commitment to tackle and complete college-level work. Earning college credit with AP can give you the flexibility to change majors, pursue a second degree, study abroad, or seek internships (Source: https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/what-is-ap).
