The HiSET® and GED® exams offer adults who could not complete high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.

The testing level is similar to what students must command when they graduate high school.

The HiSET exam consists of five independent subtests measuring an applicant’s knowledge of:

  • Language Reading
  • Language Writing
  • Math
  • Social Studies
  • Science

The GED test combines English Reading and English Writing into one exam, so there are four GED sub-exams.

The four GED or five HiSET subtests will take some 7.5 hours to complete in total, generally divided over a few days, but you may take the subtests individually.

The HiSET is available in a paper-and-pencil format and a computer-based version, whereas GED testing is exclusively offered on a computer. You can take the GED or HiSET exam online or at a state-designated test center.
