  • Language
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies

You may complete these subtests separately and in any order.

The HiSET exam includes individual writing and reading subtests, so five in total, that can also be taken separately.

Online GED and HiSET Exams

Students looking to earn their California HSE diploma can now take the HiSET or GED exam online as well. Until recently, online GED or HiSET testing was no option; it simply was not available. You needed to come to an official state-designated GED testing center and take the test in person.

That has now changed. GED or HiSET testing is now also offered in proctored formats over the Internet. Learn more here -> The online proctored HiSET exam, and for information on the GED, check out -> The online proctored GED exam.
