This is an overview of GED prep facilities and testing locations in the Bakersfield region. California welcomed the computer-based GED test for its High School Equivalency testing program.
Additionally, California embraced the HiSET exam for this purpose which can be taken both on paper and on a computer.
The GED® and HiSET® tests may be taken online or at one of California’s testing facilities. Read more below.
The exams give persons who never finished high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent diploma.
The GED is fully computerized while the HiSET exam is offered both on-computer and on-paper.
The GED includes four separate modules (subtests) in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Math, that can be completed one at a time.
The HiSET exam comes with individual Literacy writing and Literacy Reading, so five subtests overall, that may also be taken separately.
