Listed here are GED® classes and testing centers in the Chula Vista area.
California welcomed the computer-based GED exam for the purpose of high school equivalency (HSE) testing.
The state additionally embraced two alternative exams, the HiSET and the TASC, which are offered both on-paper and on-computer.
The HSE program is for adults who did not complete high school and offers them the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED exam comes with four individual tests in Science, Social Studies, Math, and Literacy that can be completed in a 2-year period. This applies to the GED only!
TASC and HiSET testing is done via five subtests as the Literacy section has separate writing and reading tests.

No online testing

Please check with a testing site near you because they have the option to use one or more of the available options.
GED passing score
The state of California issues High School Equivalency Certificates to adults 18 years and older who successfully take the four tests of the GED examination. The four tests cover the subject fields of Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies. The passing score on the new GED tests was 150 on each one of the four tests. In January 2016, however, this was reduced to 145, so the requirement to pass is no less than 580 points in total. The tests are scored on a scale 100-200. In California, students are also offered the new TASC and HiSET exams that include five tests and have different passing scores. Please check with your testing center which test(s) they are using!
In January 2014, a new generation of the now only computer-based offered GED assessment was introduced and in California, the cost of the battery of four subtests is $140.00 ($35 per subject). The GED exam, like the HiSET and TASC exams, offers adults who did not finish high school the opportunity to earn the HSE diploma which is all over the nation accepted as equivalent to a standard high school degree. The HSE credential is recognized by colleges and universities, businesses, and the military services. TASC and HiSET exams are cheaper than the GED.
Californian test takers must not have completed a secondary education, and not be engaged in another school program. You qualify for the GED exam if you are a resident of California and if you are 18 or older. For 17 year old’s there are specific requirements, so please see a test center. Students 16 years old are not allowed to sit for the high school equivalency exam in California. Don’t try to take the GED (or TASC or HiSET) exam when you are not perfectly prepared. California test centers may decide which of the three (or all) assessment systems they use, so please contact a site near you. Be aware that online GED testing is NOT possible.
The four GED tests
The new GED exam has 4 individual tests (modules): Literacy: (2hrs. 30min.); Math: (1hr. 55min.); Science: (1hr. 30min.); and Social Studies: (1hr. 10min.). You don’t need to take all four GED tests in one row, you now can take them individually at the time you feel all set to do so. Test scores are valid for two years from the moment of your initial registration! The HSE diploma is widely accepted as equivalent to the diploma awarded after finishing high school. Therefore, you will always feel at par with other high school graduates. It generates better employment options and allows for a college education.
