The GED® and HiSET® measure knowledge at a level that is comparable to what students learn during four years in high school.

The GED has four subtests (modules) in literacy, social studies, math, and science that can be taken separately.

The HiSET exam has separate writing and reading subtests, so five in total, that can also be taken one at a time.

Introducing the online GED and HiSET exams

Until recently. taking the computer-based GED test was exclusively available at state-approved GED testing centers. There simply was no option to take the GED online. If you were looking to earn a Georgia GED diploma, your personal appearance was required if you wanted to take and pass the GED modules. Now, Georgia has also welcomed the HiSET exam.

Both exams are now also offered in an online proctored format. When you use this online testing format, an online GED or HiSET proctor will help you with everything while simultaneously checking if all goes according to strict rules.

To learn more, go to this page: ‘The online GED test’ for details about the online GED exam, and for information about the HiSET-At-Home option, <- check here.
