The diploma that you’ll be awarded upon completing either exam is, across North America, accepted in the same way as a conventional high school diploma.

The HiSET exam has five independent subtests in

  • English Reading
  • English Writing
  • Science
  • Math
  • Social Studies

The GED exam combined the writing and reading sub-exams into one English Language test.

The HiSET, like the GED®, offers individuals who couldn’t graduate high school another chance to obtain an equivalent degree.

Both the GED and HiSET exams can be taken online or at one of Indiana’s state-approved test centers.

Completing the GED or HiSET exam will take a little over 7.5 hours, usually split over a few days, but you can take the subtests separately as well.

HiSET testing can be done on paper or in a computer-based format, whereas the GED exam must be completed on a computer.
