Listed here are all GED and HiSET prep class locations and testing facilities in the Bloomington, Indiana, region.
In Indiana, people looking to earn their high school equivalency diploma must pass the GED or HiSET exam.
The HiSET® and GED® exams offer adults who could not complete high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The testing level is similar to what students must command when they graduate high school.
The HiSET exam consists of five testing sections: Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
The GED test has combined English Reading and English Writing into one exam, so there are four GED sub-exams.
The four GED or five HiSET subtests will take some 7.5 hours to complete in total, generally divided over a few days, but you may take the subtests individually.
The HiSET is available both in a paper-and-pencil format and in a computer-based version, whereas GED testing is exclusively offered on a computer. You can take the GED or HiSET exam online or at a state-designated test center.

HiSET Passing Score
The HiSET passing score on each one of the five HiSET subject tests is 8 out of a possible 20 points, and overall, you need to attain a score of at least 45 points, while your essay must result in no less than a 2-score (out of 6). There’s no averaging on the HiSET exam, so 8 is the minimally required score on EACH of the five subject tests. To learn more about the Online HiSET Exam, <- check here.
GED Passing Score
On the four GED sub-exams, the minimally required score is 145 out of 200.
