GED Classes Paducah, Kentucky

This post contains a full listing of GED® prep class sites and testing locations in the Paducah area. If you never completed your high school education, the GED (General Education Development) credential is a great option.

You can sit for the Kentucky GED test at state-approved test centers and in an online format.

The GED diploma is across America accepted just like a standard high school diploma.

The GED exam includes four separate subtests in Math, Social Studies, Science, and Literacy.

The GED exam will measure your proficiency at a level that compares to the knowledge level of graduating HS seniors.

You can take one of the four GED subtests (modules) at a time. There’s no need to complete the four tests in one take.

In the past, the GED exam needed to be taken entirely on a computer and was not available over the internet. Until recently, that is.

Check below to learn more about the recently introduced online proctored GED testing option.

Kentucky GED Practice Test

Introducing an online GED test-taking option

Until recently, sitting for the GED test via the internet was no option. To secure your Kentucky GED diploma, you had to come to a state-designated GED testing site and sit for the four subtests in person. But now, a new, online GED testing option was introduced so that has changed.

Now, you also have the chance to take the four GED subtests in a new online format. An online proctor will be checking if everything happens in line with the regulations. Check out the article ‘Online proctored GED test option introduced’ if you want to learn more.
