This article lists all GED and HiSET prep locations and testing sites in the Norristown region. Pennsylvania is using two options for high school equivalency testing, the GED and the HiSET.
Both options can be taken online and at state-certified testing facilities.
The GED® and HiSET® exams offer individuals who could not finish high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
Testing is done at a level that is comparable to that of graduating high school seniors.
The GED test comes with four individual subtests in these academic sectors: math, literacy, social studies, and science.
The HiSET literacy part has a test in writing and one in reading, so five overall.
GED testing must be done on a computer, whereas the HiSET is offered both on-paper and on-computer.
Until recently, there was no option to take the GED or HiSET exam via the internet. This has now changed, however, with the launch of both HiSET and GED online proctored testing options. Read more at the bottom of this page.

Launching online GED and HiSET testing options
In the past, the GED and HiSET exams were not available in online versions. The tests had to be taken personally at a state-designated Pennsylvania HSE (High School Equivalency) testing facility. Well, recently, we’ve seen the introduction of both GED and HiSET online proctored tests, so that has fortunately changed.
To read more about the newly launched HiSET online proctored test, read this post: ‘The online HiSET test,’ and to learn all about the recently welcomed GED online test, visit ‘The online proctored GED test.’
