GED Classes Augusta, Georgia

In this article, you can find all GED prep class locations and testing centers in the Augusta, Georgia, region. Georgia uses two options for High School Equivalency testing: the GED and HiSET exams.

The exams give individuals who could not finish their regular high school curriculum a chance to earn an equivalent degree.

The GED® test is only available in a computer-based format, whereas the HiSET® can be taken on a computer or on paper.

The GED consists of four separate tests in these academic fields:

  • Language Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Social Studies
  • Science

HiSET testing comes with five subtests, as the Literacy section has separate writing and reading subtests.

You have the option to sit for one of the four GED or five HiSET subtests at a time if you wish.

Online GED and HiSET testing is now available as well. It used to be that you had to come to an official GED testing site in person, but the introduction of GED or HiSET testing formats has changed that. Learn more below.

Introducing Online GED and HiSET Testing Options

Until recently, taking the Georgia computer-based GED test had to be done exclusively at state-approved GED testing centers. There was simply not an option to take the test online, and Georgia only offered the GED until recently. Your personal appearance was needed if you wanted to take and pass the GED exam.

Now, this has changed as Georgia also welcomed the HiSET exam for HSE (High School Equivalency) testing, and new online GED and HiSET test-taking options were also introduced. When using this online format, a proctor will help you throughout the test and check if all goes according to the regulations.

To learn more about online GED testing, go to this article -> ‘The online GED test’ and to read more about the online HiSET-At-Home, <- check here.
