The “All-in-One” GED Prep

It doesn’t matter when you left school.

The exams are for adults who did not complete their formal high school education.

This way, they have one more opportunity to acquire a credential that is equivalent to a common HS diploma.

Testing takes place at a level that’s similar to what HS seniors are expected to master upon graduation.

The GED® exam is fully computerized and has 4 subtests in Literacy), Math, Social Studies, and Science.

You don’t need to take all four GED subtests (modules) in one session. The tests can be taken separately.

The HiSET® is offered both on paper and on a computer and comes with separate reading and writing tests, so five in total, that you may also take separately.

Until recently, online HiSET or GED testing was not possible. That has changed, however, with the arrival of online proctored formats for both exams. Check below for more information.

Massachusetts GED or HiSET Practice Test

Online HiSET and GED test-taking options

Sitting for the HiSET or GED exam was never possible over the internet. That is, until quite recently. You had to appear at one of Massachusetts’ state-approved test centers and take the tests in person. But now, online proctored testing formats were introduced for both the GED and HiSET exam.

You can read more about online ‘HiSET-At-Home’ testing here: ‘The HiSET online exam.’ For more information about the GED online proctored test-taking option, go to: ‘‘The online proctored GED test.’

Challenging GED

The GED exam has quite a few pretty difficult math questions, and preparation is absolutely needed.

The entire GED exam will take you about seven and a half hours to complete, but the GED has become modular. You have the option to register and pay for one or more subtests at a time. The HiSET subtests can also be taken separately.

GED/HiSET Essay Tips & Samples

GED test timing

  • Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts): 150 minutes (inc a 10-minute break)
  • Math (Mathematical Reasoning): 115 minutes
  • Science: 90 minutes
  • Social Studies: 70 minutes

GED or HiSET passing scores

The HiSET has 5 tests that are scored on a scale that runs from 1 to 20. To pass the HiSET tests, students need to attain at least a score of 8 for each subject test, have no less than a 2 for their essay (out of a possible 6), and come to a total score of at least 45. If applicants score in the 15 – 20 range on each test, they have shown that they are ready for college and career.

On the GED, students must attain a score of at least 145 points for each of the four subject tests. The GED exam is scored on a scale from 100 to 200 scale. 145-164 indicates high school equivalency, 165-174 indicates college-ready status, and 175-200 is college-ready plus college credit status.

Free prep

Quincy College has collaborated with United Way of Greater Plymouth to support students looking to get ready for their HiSET or GED exam. The school offers a 15-week program at no cost to help Plymouth and surrounding areas students prepare for these exams. The school offers this program for free, thanks to a United Way grant.

This partnership started a few years ago, so students that couldn’t finish high school can get an equivalent credential at no cost as far as preparation is concerned. The free classes are offered at Quincy College’s Plymouth Campus, 36 Cordage Park Circle. Upon successful completion of the program and after they pass one of the exams, students can also apply for scholarships for their further academic education at Quincy College.
