This page includes a full listing of GED classes and testing centers in the Brownsville area. Texas uses the GED for its high school equivalency testing program.
The GED test can be taken in an online format or at one of Texas’ official testing sites.
The exam is for adults who have no high school diploma and offers them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED® exam is fully computerized and can be taken in English and Spanish.
There are four GED subtests in math, science, literacy, and social studies that can be completed one test at a time.
In the past, online testing was not possible. You had to appear in person at an official Texas test site.
Now that has changed, however, with the launch of an online GED testing option. For more information, check the bottom of this post.

Welcoming online GED testing
Until recently, if you wanted to sit for the Texas GED test, you needed to show up in person at one of the state’s official high school equivalency (HSE) testing sites. There was just no online option available.
But that has now changed as we saw the launch of the GED proctored online testing options. If you want to learn more about online GED testing, check out ‘Introducing the online proctored GED exam.’

The GED is really important for your future. It is obvious that for many people planning to get their GED credentials, their main goal is to acquire a new and more comfortable job. For many of us counts that we often take choosing our future careers too lightly. But in reality, this is something that requires a lot of research before settling for the ultimate career choice.
Keep in mind, though, that the GED diploma is also your ticket to a great college education. People with a GED make some $9,500 more annually than people who don’t hold the credential. So what’s holding you back? A college degree will boost your income even more.
During our teenage age, we often have wide options to choose from, but as we advance in our grades and life, our choices shrink and shrink. Fortunately, the GED is giving each one of us a new opportunity and green light of having a better career. The GED diploma will enable you to access yourself and identify what you really like.
