This article lists all GED preparatory sites and testing centers in the Bowie region. Maryland uses the GED exam for its high school equivalency testing program.
The GED exam can be taken online or at certified GED test centers.
The assessment gives adults who haven’t completed high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The test of General Education Development (GED®) has four separate subtests in Science, Literacy, Math, and Social Studies.
You have the option to complete the four GED subtests one at a time.
There is no paper-based GED testing; everything must be done on a computer.
Until recently, there was no possibility to take the four GED subtests over the internet. Now, the introduction of a proctored online GED test-taking option has changed that. Read more below.
The GED diploma is all over North America recognized as being equivalent to a common HS diploma and accepted as such by virtually all post-secondary institutions and employers.

Online GED testing
It used to be taking the four GED subtests via the internet was no option. Your personal appearance at one of Maryland’s state-approved GED test facilities was required if you wanted to earn your Maryland GED diploma.
Well, that has changed. Taking the GED test is now also possible through an online proctored format. A proctor oversees your test-taking process and checks if you do it all in line with strict regulations. To learn more, go to this page: ‘The Online GED Test.’
