This page contains a complete overview of GED class locations and test centers in the San Diego region. California is using the entirely computerized GED exam for its high school equivalency testing program.
California also welcomed the HiSET alternatives for this purpose. This exam is offered both on-paper and on-computer.
Both the GED® and the HiSET® are now available online as well Check below to read more about online proctored HiSET and GED testing.
Testing occurs on a level that compares to what HS seniors must master when they graduate.
The GED exam consists of four tests in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social studies that may if you wish, be completed separately.
The HiSET exam includes individual writing and reading subtests, so five in total, that can also be taken separately.

Online GED and HiSET exams
Students looking to earn their California HSE diploma can now take the HiSET or GED exam online as well. Until recently, online GED or HiSET testing was no option; it simply was not available. You needed to come to an official state-designated GED testing center and take the test in person.
That has now changed. GED or HiSET testing is now also offered in proctored formats over the internet. Learn more here -> The online proctored HiSET exam and for information on the GED, check out -> The online proctored GED exam.
