This page lets you discover all GED prep sites and testing locations in the Lynn region. The diploma of high school equivalency is issued by Massachusetts to adults who have passed the GED or the HiSET exam.
Both options can be taken in an online format and at certified GED test centers.
The exams offer people who could not complete their HS curriculum the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED® includes four independent subtests (modules) in Social Studies, Math, Science, and Literacy.
These fully computerized GED modules don’t need to be completed in one go. You can take them one at a time.
The HiSET® has five testing fields as Literacy has separate reading and writing tests that you may also take individually.
Both exams measure basic knowledge that students usually learn in four years in high school.
The HiSET is available in both paper-based and computer-formatted versions.
Until recently, online GED and HiSET testing was no option. That has changed now as both tests came with an online test-taking option. More details are at the bottom of this page.

Online HiSET and GED testing options
It used to be that you could not deal with the GED or HiSET exam in an online format. The exams had to be taken exclusively at state-designated testing centers. But now, we’ve seen the introduction of online testing formats for both the HiSET and GED exams.
To read more about the new online ‘HiSET-At-Home’ exam, check out the following post: ‘The online HiSET test.’ For more information about the recently introduced GED online testing format, visit ‘Introducing the online GED exam.’
