GED Classes Merced, California

This article lists all HSE (high school equivalency) prep sites and testing centers in the Merced area. The GED® is not the only option anymore in California, the state also introduced the HiSET and TASC for this purpose.

The HSE program gives adults who never completed high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.

All three alternatives measure skills and knowledge at a level that compares to that of high school graduates.

The GED (General Education Development) test is a series of four independent subtests in literacy, math, science, and social studies.

HiSET and TASC contain five subtests. Here, the section Literacy comes with separate writing and reading tests.

You can take one GED, HiSET, or TASC subtest (module) at a time.

For Who Is The GED?

The GED, TASC, and HiSET exams are for adults who left high school prematurely, and students who pass one of the three tests have demonstrated that they can function independently in college and the workplace.

Holding the HSE diploma will for sure result in better employment options and opens the doors of schools of higher education. To see if you qualify, visit HSE testing criteria in California.

HiSET-TASC

TASC and HiSET contain five tests (two Language tests, one on writing and one on reading), and are also available in a paper-based version. Testing centers are deciding which exam(s) they use, so learn about the options in a test center near you. Online HSE testing is NO option. You must come to a state-approved testing site and take the exam in person.
