Listed here are all GED prep class locations and testing sites in the Forrest City region. Arkansas uses the computer-based GED exam for the state’s High School Equivalency testing purposes.
Applicants can take the four GED® subtests online or at one of the state’s official testing centers.
The assessment offers people who didn’t graduate high school an extra chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED has four tests that measure a GED student’s knowledge level in these subjects:
- Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts)
- Math (Mathematical Reasoning)
- Social Studies
The GED exam is modular, meaning you can take the four subtests one at a time and in any preferred order.

Online GED Testing
It is now possible to take the four GED subtests online. In the past, test-takers were required to report, in person, to an official Arkansas GED test center if they were looking to earn an Arkansas GED diploma.
Well, with the arrival of the online GED exam, that has changed. To qualify, students need to score “green” on the GED Ready® practice test. More information can be found here -> The online proctored GED exam.
