It doesn’t matter when you left school.

The HiSET® exam, in the same way as the GED® test, offers adults who did not finish high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.

The HiSET exam has five tests in these subject areas, Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

The assessment can be taken both on a computer and on paper in most states that use the HiSET, but Maine offers only computer-based testing.

It used to be that the HiSET exam was not available via the internet. You needed to appear in person at a Maine-approved testing center to sit for the test face-to-face, and this is still the case in Maine. The recent introduction of a new online test-taking option, however, has changed that in many states. Read more below.

The Maine high school equivalency diploma is accepted in the same way as an ordinary HS diploma by employers and schools.

There’s a new initiative in Maine that allows high school and HiSET graduates to enroll in one of Maine’s community college programs FOR FREE for two years. Check here to learn more about -> free college tuition in Maine.

Maine GED or HiSET Practice Test

Introducing The Online HiSET Exam

Until recently, HiSET testing was not offered online, and it still is not in Maine. To earn your Maine high school equivalency diploma, your personal appearance at one of Maine’s state-designated HiSET testing centers was and is required. In many states, however, all of this has changed with the introduction of a new online proctored HiSET testing option. This online option is called the HiSET-At-Home Exam.

So in several states, you can also take the HiSET exam from your own home in an online format that uses a proctor to oversee your testing activities and who checks if you do it all according to some pretty strict regulations. Check out this post -> ‘The HiSET Online Test’ if you want to learn more.
