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) that cover the academic subject fields of

  • Language Arts
  • Math
  • Social Studies
  • Science

The four sub-exams are modular; they can be completed one at a time and in any preferred order.

The HiSET exam comes with individual Language writing and Language Reading, so five subtests overall, that may also be taken separately.
