In this article, you can discover all GED® prep locations and test centers in the Lima area. Ohio uses two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED and HiSET® exams.
Both the GED and HiSET tests can be taken online and at official Ohio HSE test centers.
The GED comes only in a computerized format while the HiSET is offered on paper and on a computer.
HSE testing offers adults who could not finish high school the chance to get hold of an equivalent degree.
The GED exam includes four separate tests in the academic fields of Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
You have the option to take one GED subtest at a time. You don’t have to take the entire GED exam in one testing session.
The HiSET has five tests that can also be taken individually if wished. Here, the section “Literacy” has separate reading and writing tests.
In earlier days, online HSE testing was never possible. But there were some interesting developments with the arrival of online GED and HiSET testing options. Read more below.
