In this article, you can find all GED prep class locations and testing sites in the Blacksburg area. Virginia is using the GED exam for the state’s high school equivalency testing program.
The exam is available in an online format and at certified Virginia test centers.
The GED® exam measures knowledge at a level that’s comparable to that of high school seniors upon graduation.
The four GED subtests (also called modules) are in literacy, social studies, math, and science.
The GED diploma is accepted just like a standard high school diploma by employers and academic institutions throughout North America.
You can take the subtests one by one. You are not required to complete the entire GED battery in one take.
The GED exam is fully computerized and was, until recently, not offered online. Testing had to be done in person at state-approved test centers.
This has now changed, however, as we saw the introduction of an online proctored GED test. Learn more at the bottom of this page.

Launching an online GED testing option
In the past, you could not sit for the GED test over the internet. To get hold of your Virginia GED degree, your personal appearance at one of Virginia’s official, state-recognized GED testing centers was required.
Well, this has changed as we witnessed the arrival of an online proctored way to take the four GED subtests from the comfort of your home. An online proctor will monitor if your testing activities are occurring in line with strict regulations. More information can be found here: ‘The online proctored GED test.’
