If you had to leave high school before you earned your diploma, don’t fret. You don’t have to go back to high school to get it, you just have to study for the GED exam and pass it.
The GED exam is comprised of five sections. The science test is an 80 minute test consisting of 50 questions that cover space science, life science, physical science and earth science. The subjects on the test include photosynthesis, climate, geology, magnetism, or weather. Some essential life skills such as pollution and recycling are common questions asked. The GED test questions aren’t easy, but you can pass it if you put in some effort ahead of time.
There are many interested careers as a scientist. One such career is in hydrology.
Professionals who work in hydrology are called hydrologists. A hydrologist’s job duties will depend on his or her educational qualifications and the company or organization they work for. Hydrologists in general use scientific methods and calculations to provide answers for water-related questions and water problems and the management of freshwater resources.
Hydrologists often work as consultants. Farmers with irrigation problems may consult with a hydrologist for help with accessing water supplies. Cities and towns may also require a hydrologist’s help. Their job may take them to perform extensive field work where they collect soil and water samples to examine back at their lab. Many hydrologists work on soil erosion and flooding issues along rivers and our ocean coasts.
