Online GED and HiSET Testing

Until recently, there was no option to sit for the GED or HiSET exam online. You were required to appear personally at a state-designated Mississippi HSE testing site. Now, however, the HiSET and GED exams have become available over the Internet as well.

To learn more about these interesting developments, go for HiSET information to ‘The online HiSET test,’ and for more information on online GED testing, visit this page: ‘The online GED exam.’

Your Future

The world around us is changing, and computer-based testing has become part of our way of life. Nowadays, even for the lowest paying of all jobs, you need some sort of basic computer knowledge, and for 85% of all vacant jobs, you are required to have finished secondary education. You must have at least a high school or GED diploma).

GED and HiSET Scoring

Adults who never completed their high school education can take the GED or HiSET exam in Mississippi to create a better future for themselves and their families. The HSE credential allows for continued education and will bring about better job opportunities. It is, in fact, a fantastic pathway toward a better life.

So, besides the GED exam, Mississippi introduced the HiSET exam for its high school equivalency testing program. Mississippi test centers can make their own decision on which (or both) exam(s) they will use, so you need to check with a test center close to you to learn their testing policy.

The HiSET exam includes five tests (the literacy section is divided into writing and reading parts), is slightly cheaper than the GED exam, and is available in paper and computer versions, while the GED exam is only offered on computer. The passing score on each GED subtest is 145 (measured on a 100-200 scale), so you must attain at least 580 points overall. For more information on GED scoring, check here.

The HiSET has a scoring scale of 20 points on each test, and the minimum required score is 8; your essay score must be at least 2 (out of 6), and your overall score needs to be at least 45, not including your essay.

The Mississippi HSE (High School Equivalency) diploma carries the same weight as a standard high school diploma and is honored across North America for employment requirements and college entrance. So, if you don’t hold a high school diploma, the GED (General Educational Development) or the HiSET might be your perfect track.
