New Hampshire said goodbye to the GED® test and introduced a new HSE (High School Equivalency) Test, the HiSET.
The HiSET, like the GED, measures the level of knowledge of New Hampshire residents at the level of graduating HS seniors.
The HiSET exam includes 5 tests in these subject areas: Language Reading, Language Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Math.
The fee to take the HiSET exam is $95, retests are $20 per subject.
The HiSET test consists of a large part of multiple choice questions (only the writing section not), and you can discover strategies that will allow you to stay clear of wrong answers.
By training this you will become more confident and your scores will improve. At the test, just think of strategies you learned in HiSET classes.
