Online GED Testing
Until recently, sitting for the GED exam via the Internet was not an option. You needed to come, in person, to an official Connecticut GED testing facility if you wanted to secure your high school equivalency degree.
Well, all of that has now changed as an online proctored GED testing option was introduced that uses an online proctor to guide you through the entire process. More information can be found here: Introducing the online proctored GED test.
