Listed in this article are all GED prep classes and testing sites in the Reading region. Pennsylvania offers two options for high school equivalency testing, the GED and the HiSET.
Both exams are offered in online formats and at official Pennsylvania test centers.
Testing is done at a level that is comparable to that of high school students upon graduation.
The GED® must be taken on a computer, while the HiSET® is offered in both a paper-based and a computerized format.
The GED has four individual subtests (or modules) in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social studies.
You can take one (or more) of the four GED modules at a time. No need to complete the entire GED battery in one session.
The HiSET exam contains five subtests as it comes with two literacy tests, one in writing, and one in reading.
If you want, you may also take the five HiSET subtests individually.
For information on the newly launched online HiSET and GED proctored testing options, check below at the bottom of this page.

Launching online GED or HiSET testing options
In earlier days, both the GED and the HiSET exams were not available over the internet. The tests had to be dealt with at official Pennsylvania HSE (High School Equivalency) testing sites. But recently, we saw introductions of both an online proctored GED exam and a new online HiSET test-taking option.
To learn more about the HiSET online testing option, read this post: ‘The online HiSET test,’ and if you want to learn more about the recently introduced GED online test, visit this page -> ‘The online proctored GED test.’
