Pass the GED in 2 Months

Learn Just 1 Hour a Day.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.


The HiSET® is offered on-paper and on-computer testing while the GED® is offered exclusively on a computer.

The HiSET has five modular subtests in the academic subject fields of Literacy Writing, Literacy Reading, Science, Social Studies, and Math.

HiSET testing, like with the GED, takes place at a level that compares to that of graduating HS seniors.

There was, until recently, no online HiSET testing option. You had to come to an official HiSET testing site to sit for the exam in person.

This has changed now, however, with the launch of an online proctored HiSET exam. Learn more at the bottom of this page.

Online HiSET testing introduced

Until recently, the HiSET exam, just like the GED test, had to be taken in person at one of Tennessee’s official testing centers. But that has now changed with the introduction of an online proctored HiSET exam. To learn more about this interesting development, check out: Online HiSET testing introduced.
