This article lists all GED (in New Hampshire: HiSET) prep classes and testing locations in the Concord area. HiSET testing is available online and at state-designated HiSET test centers.
If you wish to earn your high school equivalency degree in New Hampshire, you must pass the HiSET exam.
The exam is for adults who never graduated high school. It gives them a chance to obtain an equivalent diploma.
The HiSET® assesses knowledge at a level similar to what HS students must command upon graduation.
The HiSET (short for High School Equivalency Test) has five testing subject areas: writing, reading, social studies, math, and science.
In earlier days, there was no HiSET testing option. You had to come to an official NH testing site and sit for the tests (one at a time, if you wish) in person.
However, this has now changed with the arrival of an online proctored HiSET test-taking option. Read more below.

Online HiSET Test
In earlier days, the HiSET exam could be, like the GED exam, taken exclusively at official, state-approved testing sites. There just was no online option to sit for taking the high school equivalency test. That has changed now with the arrival of an online HiSET testing possibility. For more details, check out the following post: The online HiSET exam.

The cost of the NH HiSET exam is $25 per subtest. Some testing centers provide practice tests, and these are not free (usually $10 to $15). The practice tests on this website are free. You have to be at least 16 years of age, but if you are 16 or 17, you may only be eligible if you meet strict requirements. Please contact the nearest testing center.
In New Hampshire, you must be a state resident to be able to take the exam, and please think about bringing a valid government-issued photo ID.
If you are taking the HiSET test in a paper-and-pencil format, you will receive your test results in two weeks, but if you opt for computer-based testing, you can check your scores immediately after testing, except for the writing section.
The passing score on each of the five subject area tests is 8 out of a possible 20. The essay section must result in at least 2 (out of 6) points, and the total score must not be under 45 (out of 100), not including your essay score.
