I'm not sure exactly on the grading, because I dropped out of high school and ended up getting my GED. With rather high scores I might add.
Just remember, no matter what happens. You don't have to fill ANY ONES shoes but your own.

General Educational Development Diploma.
Here is a Link that will describe it better than I can.

It's also known as a "good enough diploma".

Pep, that's a mighty good reading scores. Matches, if not beats, my score and I'm about to be a senior in high school. Then again I have an excuse...sometimes I get my Portuguese and English grammar all mixed up, plus I don't read fast enough. (Regardless, I should be able to do better.) Keep up the good work!

edit: Real quick my 2 cents. Standardized testing is a load of bull. I know many talented people who perform at excellent levels in school, however they're incapable of high test scores. I consider myself one those. As a quick example: I have 103% in my Calc2 class, clearly destroying it, but I can't even get a perfect on ACT/SAT middle school level math. It's absurd.

edit2: My scores if you are curious:

Critical Reading 590
Math 710
Writing 570
