Listed in this article are GED® preparatory class sites and testing facilities in the Morristown area.
New Jersey offers three options to people looking to earn their HSE (High School Equivalency) degree, the GED, TASC, and HiSET.
The HSE program is for adults who did not complete high school and gives them another chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED (General Education Development) has four separate subtests (modules) in literacy, social studies, math, and science.
You need to complete the GED modules in maximally two years after your first registration.
The HiSET and TASC have split up the Literacy part in separate writing and reading tests, so five in total that can also be taken separately.
New Jersey was the first state where all three tests could be only be taken on a computer. Paper-and-pencil testing belongs to the past except for applicants who need accommodations.

Reduced GED passing score
Please note that the passing score for each individual GED subtest was adjusted from 150 to 145 points. The level was apparently set too high and more information is available on our GED News pages. TASC and HiSET come with different scoring methods. All three exams are developed to help adults who, for whatever reason, never completed high school, with obtaining a diploma that is comparable to a regular high school diploma. Check out the page GED testing in New Jersey to find out you qualify for the state’s high school equivalency exam.
Change your career
After you have acquired your HSE (high school equivalency) diploma you will certainly be in a position to change your career, but before doing that, it is of importance that you have a careful thought about the available choices. To start with, create a plan. It will be a big mistake if you try changing careers without proper planning. When you have a strategy in place, it may take a few months to execute your plan after obtaining your HSE certification.
By having a detailed action strategy such as research, finances, and education, you stand better chances of achieving success. Without proper planning, you may end up taking a first job opportunity that comes your way, whether it fits your requirements or not. But if there are people who are pushing you into changing careers, you may end up yielding to their pressure just to please them. You shouldn’t let anyone, including your parents to influence your career choices because they will never have to live with that career choice, but you do.
It may be a good idea to seek advice from an experienced person when making a career change. The help which is offered by a mentor when you are starting out on a new career is valuable. After deciding which career field you would like to go into, start looking for new contacts. Check out also this post that contains links to all US GED programs.
Join forums, familiarize yourself with interviews and join social media networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook. Check carefully the entire range of possibilities before diving in. This should also include career fields which you had never thought of before. This way, you may discover the best career choice for you. You have worked hard enough for your HSE diploma and you deserve to have the best career possible.
