Should I take GED?

I’m currently sophomore( supposed to be a junior but since I'm international I made my grade lower) and have great GPA and extra curriculars. But since I'm international, my SAT grades are low. (4.0 unweighted GPA with 1220sat) do y'all think I should just take GED this year and apply as class of 2021? (since its test optional)

The GRE is for grad school...

Rather than graduating early with a GED, I recommend taking a test prep course (some are free online) and taking the SAT again. The College Board recommends Khan Academy. If you take rigorous classes and improve your SAT score, I think you'll have a stronger application than rushing to apply this year under test optional. There's a chance schools will remain test optional for 2022 too.
