Online HiSET and GED Tests

In the past, taking one of the Illinois high school equivalency tests (HiSET, GED) over the Internet was not an option. The tests were just not available online. To acquire your GED diploma, you needed to come to an official testing site and sit for the tests personally.

Well, that has changed! Both the HiSET and GED exams have introduced an online version using an online proctor. If you want to read more, go to ‘The online GED exam,’ and for more information on the HiSET, check out -> ‘The HiSET-At-Home test.’
