GED Classes Manchester, New Hampshire

Last Updated on May 15, 2024.

This post lists all HiSET and GED prep class locations and testing sites in the Manchester area. New Hampshire is using two options for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) testing program: the GED and HiSET exams.

Both GED and HiSET testing can be done online or at one of New Hampshire’s official testing facilities.

The GED and HiSET assessment gives persons who have never completed high school one more option to obtain an equivalent credential.

GED or HiSET testing is done at a similar level to what HS seniors are expected to know when they graduate.

This website provides online GED classes for free that can help you determine if an online course may be right for your GED preparation. Some students, however, do better if they join one of the physical classes listed on this page.

If online studying fits you well, we recommend you register with Onsego’s Online GED Prep. a preparatory course that GED Testing Service recognizes as “Fully GED Test-Aligned.”

GED testing includes four individual, modular sub-exams that measure a student’s knowledge and skills in these subject fields:

  • Math
  • Science
  • Language
  • Social Studies

The HiSET comes with five modular subtests in English writing, English reading, social studies, math, and science.

The diploma that’s awarded upon successful completion of the GED or HiSET exam will surely lead to better job options, and it allows for a college education.

The GED and HiSET exams were, until recently, not offered online. Testing needed to be done at an official testing center.

But now, we’ve seen the introduction of the OP (Online Proctored) GED Test and the ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home.’ Read more below.

Online GED and HiSET Testing

Until recently, to sit for the New Hampshire GED or HiSET test was impossible; you had to come, in person, to an official state-approved HSE testing center. Online testing was simply not available. This has changed with the arrival of online testing options called the ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’ and the OP (Online Proctored) GED Test.

For more information on the online HiSET program, go to Introducing the HiSET-At-Home exam. For more information about the Online Proctored GED test, check out this page.

GED Scoring

Your GED scores are calibrated on a scale of 100 to 200. On each of the four sub-exams, the passing score is 145 points. The passing score ranges are:

  • 145-164: high school equivalent score
  • 165-174: college-ready score
  • 175-200: college-ready PLUS up to 10 college credits score

HiSET Scoring

Your scores on the five HiSET subtests are measured on a 0-20 scale. On each subtest, the passing score is 8. Your overall result must be at least 45, and the score on your essay must be at least a 2 out of 6.
