Pass the GED in 2 Months

Learn Just 1 Hour a Day.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.


The exams give adults who never graduated high school one more chance to obtain an equivalent diploma.

The GED® has four subtests in Math, Social Studies, Science, and Literacy. You have the option to complete these subtests one at a time.

The HiSET® exam comes with five tests (Literacy has individual writing and reading tests) that can be taken separately, too.

While the GED is totally computerized, the HiSET exam is offered in both paper-based and computerized versions.

In the past, online testing was not available. Testing had to be done at official state-designated testing centers.

Introducing online HiSET and GED testing

Until recently, it was not possible to take the HiSET or GED exam online. To secure your North Carolina HSE (high school equivalency) degree, your personal appearance at one of the state’s official HSE testing sites was required.

Well, recently we’ve seen the launch of both online proctored GED and HiSET test-taking options, so all of that has changed. If you would like to get informed about the new online GED test-taking possibility, visit ‘The online proctored GED test,’ and if you want to read more about online HiSET testing, check out this page: ‘The online HiSET test.’
