GED Classes New Castle, Pennsylvania

In this post, you can discover all GED or HiSET prep sites and test centers in the New Castle region. Pennsylvania uses the computerized GED exam for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.

Additionally, the state welcomed the HiSET exam for that purpose. Both exams can be taken online and at certified HSE test centers.

The HiSET can be done both on-computer and on-paper and is more affordable than the GED exam.

The HSE program is for persons who quit high school without a diploma and gives them the opportunity to get hold of an equivalent degree.

The GED exam has four independent subtests in the subject areas of Math, Literacy, Science, and Social Studies.

You can take (and pay for) one GED subtest (module) at a time.

The HiSET exam contains five tests (the section literacy is divided into writing and reading tests) that are also modular.

To learn more about the recently launched online proctored GED and HiSET testing options, check the bottom of this post.

Launching online proctored GED and HiSET tests

In earlier days, the HiSET and the GED exam were not offered in online versions. They had to be taken in-person at one of Pennsylvania’s state-approved HSE testing facilities. That is, until just recently, as we saw the introduction of both online proctored GED and HiSET test-taking options.

For more detailed information on the new HiSET online test, read the following post: ‘Introducing the online HiSET test-taking option’ and to read all about the recently launched GED online testing option, visit this post: ‘Welcoming the online proctored GED test’.
