On this page, you can discover all GED® prep class locations and testing centers in the Frederick area. To earn your HSE (high school equivalency) credential in Maryland, you need to pass the four subtests of the GED exam.
The four tests can be taken online or at one of Maryland’s certified GED testing facilities.
The HSE program gives adults who never finished high school the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
The four GED subtests must be taken on a computer and are in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
You can complete the four GED subtests one at a time. No need to take the entire GED battery in one take.
Online testing is not offered. You need to show up at an official Maryland GED testing site.
Until recently, there was no online GED test. Personal appearance at an official GED test center was required, but this has now changed with the introduction of an online GED testing option. Learn more below.

A new online GED testing option
Until recently, taking the GED exam over the internet was no option. You needed to show up, in person, at one of Maryland’s state-approved GED test facilities if you wanted to earn a Maryland GED diploma.
Well, now that has changed. You have the option to sit for the GED exam now in an online, proctored format. The proctor will oversee your testing activities and check if you do everything in accordance with some pretty strict regulations. Visit this page, ‘New online GED testing option’, to learn more.
Maryland subsidizes GED testing and the entire GED battery will set you back just $45 in the state. GED testing in Maryland is only for state residents. For eligibility criteria go to this post: GED testing in Maryland.
Studying and preparing for the GED exam has become a necessity, as many multiple-choice questions have been done away with in favor of mathematical questions that are more interactive, and computer-based essays that require critical thinking and social studies skills.
The instructional GED model is more true to life, to better reflect the expectations and requirements of the modern-day workplace. Successful test-takers will now be better equipped to deal with real-life situations. For free online prep courses, check out this website’s video lessons and free GED practice tests.
