This post lists all GED prep locations and testing centers in and around Mount Vernon. Illinois offers two high school equivalency exams, the HiSET and the GED.
Both of these exams are offered online and at state-designated test centers. Read more below about taking the HiSET and GED online.
The GED® exam is entirely computerized and has four independent modules, or subtests, that can be taken separately.
The four tests cover the fields of Math, Social Studies, Literacy, and Science.
The HiSET® exam is slightly cheaper than the GED and is available both on a computer and on paper.
The five HiSET subject tests may also be dealt with individually.
The HiSET exam comes with five tests, as it includes separate English Reading and English Writing tests.
In Illinois, test-takers must also pass the state’s Constitution exam.

Online proctored HiSET and GED exams
Taking the GED or HiSET exam over the internet was not an option. Until recently! If you were looking to earn your high school equivalency diploma, you needed to show up in person at an official, state-designated testing site.
Well, that has changed. The GED and HiSET exams have introduced online versions now as well with the use of an online proctor. For more detailed information, check out -> The online GED exam,’ and for HiSET information, check out -> ‘The HiSET-at-Home test.’
