GED Classes Alhambra, California

California has not only implemented the new GED® exam to measure HSE (high school equivalency) skills and knowledge of its residents.

The state additionally introduced the more affordable options TASC and HiSET for this purpose. Listed here are all HSE prep facilities in and around Alhambra, California.


The new GED is modular (meaning you can take one of the four subtests at a time) and scores are good for two years from the first time you register. The four GED tests are in Social Studies, Math, Literacy, and Science. TASC and HiSET include five testing sections as the Literacy part has separate reading and writing tests. The GED must be done on a computer, while the other two alternatives can be done both on a computer and on paper and they are less expensive than the GED.

GED scoring

The passing score for each of the GED tests was in early 2016 reduced to 145 (from 150), and if you want to learn more about this important decision check out this GED News article. HiSET and TASC have different scoring methods. For eligibility criteria and a lot more information go to GED California. Not all three HSE exams are offered at all testing sites, so get well informed.

Alternatives TASC and HiSET

The new GED exam includes four tests in these academic subjects: Literacy, Math, Science and Social Studies. Besides the new GED, California residents can also take the new alternatives, the TASC and the HiSET tests, but testing sites decide which exam(s) they are using, so contact a test center close to you. The HSE (high school equivalency) diploma is accepted by practically all U.S. schools and employers.

GED acceptance

The GED (General Education Development) program (and also the alternatives HiSET and TASC) supports adults without a high school diploma to earn a credential that is equivalent to a regular high school diploma. The diploma will improve their employment prospects and allows for continued education at institutions of higher education.

Online testing is NO option

Please be aware that the GED, TASC, and HiSET exams are not available online. You must appear in person at an official testing site and take the tests in person. Websites that have a different story are run by con artists. There is NO online high school equivalency testing. Online-bought documents have no value and will definitely not be accepted by schools or employers!

GED and the economy

The GED program was first introduced by the United States War Dept. during the 1940’s to help military employees with obtaining additional education and better employment options. There are still around 40 million men and women in the U.S. who, for whatever reason, never completed high school, and the GED program is mainly meant for them.

Completing the GED tests successfully will lead to improved professional possibilities and open doors of colleges and universities. Each year, more than half a million people pass the GED examination, and you could very well be one of them.
