This article is an overview of GED® prep locations and testing facilities in the Marshall area.
Minnesota uses the entirely computer-based GED exam for high school equivalency (HSE) testing.
To earn a GED diploma, you need to pass the four independent GED subtests in Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies.
The tests are at a level that compares to that of a graduating HS student.
You don’t need to do all four tests in one take, as your scores count for two years from your first registration.
The GED exam is entirely computer-based. There is no paper-and-pencil testing option anymore.
Should we make adjustments? Is maybe a prep facility not included? We appreciate contributions that enable us to keep out information up-to-date, so please let us know through this contact page.
