This article lists all GED prep class sites and testing centers in the Florence region. Alabama uses the computer-formatted GED exam for high school equivalency testing.
Online GED testing is now possible at well. To qualify, candidates must attain scores in the “green” zone on the official GED Ready® practice test. Read more below.
The GED® exam offers persons who did not graduate high school the chance to obtain an equivalent diploma.
The exam measures knowledge at a level that compares to what students must command after four years in high school.
The GED exam comes with four separate subtests (modules) in these subject areas: literacy, math, science, and social studies.
You can take one (or more) of the four modules at a time.
The GED exam is fully computer-based. Paper-formatted testing is a thing of the past, so basic computer skills are required as well.

Introducing The Online GED Exam
Sitting for the four GED subtests via the Internet is now a reality for qualifying test-takers. It used to be that test-takers needed to report in person to an official GED testing center to sit for Alabama’s high school equivalency test, but fortunately, that has now changed.
The GED test has become available online as well, using an online proctor who will oversee your test-taking process. For more information, go to this post: online GED testing.

One Test At A Time
You are not required to sit for the entire GED battery in one take. You have the option to take one (or more) of the four modules at a time. Many students take that subtest first which they think is easiest for them to build up their confidence.
If you take the GED test at a test center, you’ll get two retakes at a reduced rate. If you take the GED exam online, there are no discounted retakes.
