GED testing involves four individual, modular sub-exams that assess a student’s proficiency in:

  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • English Language Arts

There are five subtests that make up the HiSET exam. Testing is done in science, writing, reading, math, and social studies.

The HiSET (short for High School Equivalency Test) is offered in a computerized format and on paper, while the GED (General Education Development) test is available in a computer-formatted version only.
