Upon successful completion of the four GED® subtests, applicants will receive a credential that is equivalent to a common high school diploma.

The GED diploma is all across the nation accepted as equivalent to a high school diploma by colleges, universities, training schools, and employers.  The exam tests basic knowledge and skills at the level of graduating high school seniors.

There are four independent GED subtests in the academic fields of

  • English Language Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies

You can take one of the four tests (modules) separately. No need to take the GED battery in one take.

Online GED Exam

Taking the GED exam over the Internet is now possible. Until recently, test-takers had had to show up personally at one of Alabama’s designated test centers if they were looking to earn a high school equivalency diploma.

That has now changed! GED Testing Service introduced an Internet-based version of the GED test using an online proctor that checks if all goes in line with the rules and regulations. More information is found here: online proctored GED testing.
