It doesn’t matter when you left school.

The GED® and HiSET® exams offer persons who never completed high school one more option to earn an equivalent credential.

The GED has four separate subtests in Literacy, Science, Social Studies, and Math. You can deal with these four tests separately.

The HiSET comes with five tests. The Literacy section includes a reading and a writing test. You can take these subtests separately as well.

The HiSET is offering both on-computer and on-paper testing, whereas the GED is exclusively offered on a computer.

Until recently, online GED or HiSET testing has never been possible. You were required to show up at an official state-approved Pennsylvania HSE testing site and sit for the tests in person.

Now, this has changed with the launch of online proctored testing options for both HiSET and GED testing. Learn more below.

Launching GED and HiSET online tests

In the past, both the GED and HiSET exam had to be taken, in-person, at an official Pennsylvania HSE testing site. Online HSE test-taking was never possible. That is, until recently, as we witnessed the introduction of both an online proctored GED exam and a new online HiSET testing option.

For information on the HiSET online testing option, check out ‘Welcoming the online HiSET test,’ and for information on the online GED option, go to ‘Welcoming the online GED test.’
