Listed here are all GED® prep classes and testing facilities in the Ocala area. Florida has welcomed the computer-formatted GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The GED program is geared towards adults who were not in the position to finish their high school education.
This way, they can get hold of a credential that’s across America accepted just like a common high school diploma by employers and schools.
The GED exam includes four separate subtests in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies that can be completed separately.
It was not possible to take the GED tests online. If you wanted to earn your GED diploma, you needed to sit for the GED tests in person. But with the introduction of a new online testing option, that has changed. Learn more below.

Welcoming the online GED test
There never has been an online option to take the GED exam. To acquire your GED diploma, you had to come to one of Florida’s state-designated testing sites and sit for the four GED modules in person.
But now, with the introduction of a new, online, proctored GED test, that has changed. An online proctor will be guiding you through the entire online test-taking process. To learn more, visit ‘New online GED exam introduced’.
