This article shows you all GED prep classes and testing centers in the Florence area. South Carolina uses the GED test for its high school equivalency testing program.
The exam is fully computer-based and can be taken at state-approved South Carolina test centers or online by qualifying candidates.
The GED® exam offers persons who didn’t finish high school an extra option to secure an equivalent diploma.
The GED has four individual subtests that assess a candidate’s knowledge of these subjects:
- Literacy Reasoning through Language Arts)
- Math (Mathematical Reasoning)
- Social Studies
You have the option to finish the GED battery one test at a time.
In the past, online GED testing has never been an option, but the recent launch of an online GED testing option has changed that in most states. For more information, check below.

Online GED Testing
In the past, it had never been possible to take the GED exam via the Internet. If you wanted to secure your HSE (high school equivalency) diploma, your personal appearance at an official HSE test center was required.
In most states, with the launch of an online GED test, that has come to an end. More detailed information can be found in this article: ‘The online GED test.’

The Four GED Modules
There are four General Educational Development tests, generally referred to as the GED. The four exams are independent modules that students can take one by one. There’s no need to take the entire GED exam (all 4 modules) in one take.
The four exams measure the general skills, knowledge, and thinking capabilities that it usually takes to earn a common high school degree. Across North America, practically all employers and schools of post-secondary learning require applicants to hold a diploma or GED equivalent for college admission, employment, or promotion.
