In this post, you can find all GED® prep classes and test facilities in the Reston area. Virginia is using the computer-based GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
GED testing can be done online or at an official Virginia GED test center.
The HSE program gives adults who left high school prematurely the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
The GED exam contains four individual tests in these academic fields: Science, Social Studies, Math, and Literacy.
Testing takes place at a level that compares to what students are supposed to command after four years in high school.
The GED exam is modular, meaning that you can opt to take one (or more) of the subtests (modules) at a time.
When you’ve set up your account at GED.com. you only have to pay for the module(s) that you register for.
It used to be that online GED testing was not available. You needed to show up in person at an official Virginia GED test center.
But recently, we’ve seen the introduction of a new online GED testing option. To learn more, check the information below at the bottom of this post.

To see if you qualify for the GED program, go to GED in Virginia
In Virginia, the full GED battery costs $120 (or $30 per module). You can register and pay for one of the GED tests at a time. The GED diploma is across North America recognized and accepted as the equivalency of a common high school degree. The computerized GED exam is quite challenging, so if you want to earn a high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, get properly prepared.
The GED exam includes four tests in the fields of Science, Social Studies, Literacy, and Math.
The four tests are timed as follows:
Science – You will have 90 minutes to complete this test
Social Studies – 70 minutes for this section
Literacy (Reasoning Through Language Arts) – For this test, you are given 150 minutes (including a short 10-min break)
Math (Mathematical Reasoning) – This section must be completed within 115 minutes
Launching online proctored GED testing
In earlier days, you couldn’t sit for the GED exam in an online format. If you were looking to secure your Virginia GED degree, you needed to present yourself in-person at one of the state’s official GED testing facilities.
But now, we’ve witnessed the introduction of the new online proctored GED test-taking option. If you qualify for this online option, you are allowed to sit for the four GED modules online format from your home. A proctor will oversee your activities online and check if you do everything according to the rules. To learn more about the online GED testing option, check out this page Welcoming the online proctored GED test.
