Last Updated on April 9, 2024.

Why Take a GED Practice Test?

Taking GED Practice Tests allows you to identify which subject areas you should concentrate on to reach a great score on the real test, so you don’t have to waste your time learning for subject matter that you already master.

If you discover which topics you must work on to reach a great score, you’ll be able to use your study time better and more efficiently.

One more advantage of taking our practice tests is that you will get familiar with testing under time pressure. All exams include timed tests, and this causes lots of problems for students. So get used to this with our practice test.

The HiSET exam, just like the GED test, can be taken online in a proctored format (the HiSET-At-Home Test) or at state-designated Indiana testing centers.

Who Qualifies?

In Indiana, candidates are required to be state residents or have lived in the state for at least 30 days. The minimum required age is 16 years old, though 17 and 18-year-old candidates must meet additional, strict requirements.

In Indiana, candidates don’t have to follow a prep course or sit for a practice test before they are allowed to take the HiSET exam.

To qualify, applicants cannot hold a secondary education degree, nor can they be registered for some other school program.

Passing Scores

On the HiSET subtests, candidates must attain at least a score of 8 out of a possible 20. The overall score must be in the 45-100 range, and the HiSET essay must have at least a score of 2 out of 6.

The Indiana HSE (High School Equivalency) certificate is the equivalency of a standard high school degree and is accepted by virtually all employers, government agencies, and universities and colleges.


The GED test, when taken at an Indiana test center, costs $120 for the full battery or $30 per subtest. Online testing will set you back $36 per subtest, so $144 in total.

In Indiana, the full HiSET exam costs $115. However, when you take the online version, the HiSET-At-Home Exam, some extra fees will apply.

Keep in mind that for both the GED and HiSET counts that the subtests are independent modules that can be taken separately, one at a time, if you like. So there’s no need to take it all at once. Prepare just for one part, pass that section, and move ahead to the next subtest.


Is the Indiana HiSET easier than the former TASC?

Hard to say. Both exams measure skills and proficiency at a level comparable to what graduating high school students must know upon graduation. You cannot say that one exam is harder or easier than the other. Some students, however, have reported that the HiSET Math portion is slightly less difficult than the Math portion of the TASC exam, which was replaced with the HiSET in Indiana.

Do I have to take a qualification practice test in Indiana?

No, Indiana doesn’t require candidates to first take a qualifying practice test if they take the exam at an Indiana test center. To qualify for online testing, however, attaining passing scores on the GED Ready Test or the official HiSET practice tests first is required. Candidates are also not required to sign up for a prep course, though getting optimally prepared is your key to success.

Is the GED test hard in Indiana?

Yes, the GED exam is a very challenging test. The passing standards are set at such a level that around 40% of high school graduates could not pass the tests on their first try!
