GED Classes Downey, California

This article comes with an overview of HSE preparatory facilities and testing sites in the Downey, California, area.

To earn your high school equivalency (HSE) diploma in California, you need to pass one of the three available exams: the GED®, TASC, or HiSET. If you wish to obtain your HSE diploma, you are required to come in person to a state-designated testing site. There is NO online HSE test.

Four GED subtests

The GED exam is administrated on a computer and contains four separate subtests in Math (Mathematical Reasoning), Science, Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts), and Social Studies. For eligibility details check out the page GED in California. The GED is modular, which means that you have the option to take one subtest (module) when you are ready to do so within a window of two years from the moment you register for your first test.

Adjusted GED passing score

The GED passing score was in early 2016 adjusted by to 145 (down from 150) for each subtest. You can read more about this important decision in this GED News article. More information about California’s HSE testing programs we refer to this article: GED testing in California. Not all testing centers use all three tests, so get informed.

GED improvements

The new (2014 Series) GED exam has far fewer multiple choice questions that former editions. Answers need to be given more in essay style and herein lies the reason that the former writing test has disappeared. Writing skills can be assessed through the other tests. Paper-based testing has disappeared completely, all test are done on a computer, so basic keyboarding skills are required as well. Test results will be available right after testing, except for the essay part that will need a few days to be processed. This really is a great improvement compared to former days when test-takers needed to wait several weeks to learn if they passed.
