Learn Just 1 Hour a Day.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.

The HSE test gives persons who didn’t graduate high school another option to obtain an equivalent degree.

Testing takes place at a comparable level as what HS seniors must know upon graduation.

The GED must be taken entirely on a computer and includes four tests in literacy, social studies, math, and science.

You have the option to deal with the four GED subtests one at a time. The HiSET subtests are also modular and are offered on-paper and on-computer.

The HiSET exam has five tests. The section Literacy comes with separate English Reading and English Writing tests.

In Illinois, test takers must also pass the Illinois Constitution Exam. For the rest of this year, however, this requirement was suspended.

Online HiSET and GED tests introduced

In the past, taking one of the Illinois high school equivalency tests (HiSET, GED) over the internet was not an option. The tests were just not available online. To acquire your GED diploma, you needed to come to an official testing site and sit for the tests personally.

Well, that has changed! Both the HiSET and GED exams have introduced an online version using an online proctor. If you want to read more, go to online GED exam introduced, and HiSET-At-Home test introduced.
