Listed in this article are all GED® prep classes and test centers in the Jacksonville region.
Florida uses the fully computer-formatted GED exam for HSE (high school equivalency) testing.
HSE testing is for adults who never finished high school and gives them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The four GED (General Education Development) subtests are in English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
The GED is fully computerized. No more paper-and-pencil testing.
These subtests (modules) can be taken one at a time as long as you deal with the entire GED battery within two years.
Online testing is not an option. You must show up in person at an official Florida test center.

The GED exam
The GED is geared towards adult learners who don’t have a high school diploma. There are four modules, or subtests, that must be completed in a time frame of maximally two years. A student can access the GED program if she or he is at least 16 years of age and is nor involved in any other education program. The GED diploma will definitely lead to better career opportunities and also allows for a college education.
The GED test assesses students’ level of skills and knowledge that must be at the level of high school students upon graduation. After the biggest overhaul in the program’s history, successful applicants are again educated in accordance with work floor realities and should be able to function well in universities. The GED credential will surely lead to better and better-paying employment and is also your ticket to a college education. Testing is done exclusively on a computer and registration must be done online.
A student can find all the help and training he or she needs to be successful on the GED exam. There are numerous small or large facilities that offer great support and this website provides lots of free practice tests and very effective video lessons as well to get you all set. Our services cost you nothing and you can learn at times that are fitting your calendar.
One GED test at a time
Most multiple choice questions have gone. The entire exam became essay-style interactive, and there is more focus on critical thinking. The GED exam is only available in a computer-based format and you can schedule one of the four modules at a time within a 2-year time frame. The four subtests are on Literacy, Social Studies, Science, and Math. So go ahead contact maybe the adult education department of your local community college to see if the staff can help you with their courses.
See also if you can visit job fairs or some business or education events to check options and possibilities open to you. Visit as well our GED news pages to learn all about what’s going on and get a better life and if needed, request for assistance if you want to sign up for a GED class. Don’t skip main events as there you may find the most relevant information to get ahead in life!
Online GED testing?
The GED exam is now completely computer-formatted, but to sit for the exam, you must come to a GED testing site in person as the tests are NOT offered online. Websites that claim differently are false, and only want to steal your hard-earned money. Documents obtained over the internet are worthless and will for sure not be recognized by schools and potential employers!
