Online Proctored HiSET and GED Testing

The GED and HiSET exams can now be taken online as well. It used to be that online GED and HiSET testing over the Internet was not possible and that test-takers were required to come to a state-recognized test center in person.

Well, that has now completely changed with the arrival of online proctored GED and HiSET test-taking options. For more information about taking the GED exam online, check out The online GED exam, and for more HiSET information, go to The online HiSET test.

The GED Exam – For Who is it?

The GED and HiSET tests are intended for adults who never finished high school, and the diploma or certificate that you are going to receive when you complete the HiSET or GED test successfully is recognized as equivalent to a high school diploma by state and federal institutions, employers, and universities and colleges throughout the nation.

The GED (General Education Development) and HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) assess if you can be successful in college and university and/or if you will succeed on the work floor.

The HSE program is geared towards persons who don’t hold a high school diploma and gives them a chance to earn an equivalent degree. The GED credential will definitely lead to better employment, and it opens the door toward a college education.
