This post includes a full listing of all GED prep classes and testing sites in the Tupelo area. Mississippi uses two options for high school equivalency testing, the GED and HiSET exams.
GED and HiSET testing can be done online and at state-certified testing facilities.
The exams are for adults who never finished high school and offer them another chance to acquire an equivalent diploma.
The assessments measure knowledge at a level similar to what students must command upon graduation.
The GED® is fully computer-based, whereas the HiSET® can be taken both on a computer and on paper.
The GED test has four subtests (modules) in the subject areas of Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies that may be completed separately.
The HiSET exam has separate writing and reading tests, so five overall, that can be taken separately, too.
It used to be that there was no online GED or HiSET testing option. You had to go to a state-approved HSE testing site to take the tests in person. But now, that has changed with the arrival of online proctored (OP) HiSET and GED testing possibilities. read more below.

Introducing online GED and HiSET tests
Until recently, there never had been an online HiSET or GED testing option, but recently, that has changed. It was so that your personal appearance at an official Mississippi HSE testing site was required, but recently, we saw the introduction of online proctored versions of the GED and HiSET exams.
