This article lists all GED® preparatory sites and testing centers in the Bowie region. Maryland uses the GED exam for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.
The GED exam can be taken online or at certified GED test centers.
The HSE program gives adults who haven’t completed high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The test of General Education Development (GED) has four separate subtests in Science, Literacy, Math, and Social Studies.
You have the option to complete the four GED subtests one at a time.
There is no paper-based GED testing, everything must be done on a computer.
Until recently, there was no possibility to take the four GED subtests over the internet. Now, the introduction of a proctored online GED test-taking option has changed that. Read more below.
The GED diploma is all over North America recognized as being equivalent to a common HS diploma and accepted as such by virtually all post-secondary institutions and employers.
