In this article, you can discover all GED® prep facilities and test centers in the Sandy Springs area. Georgia uses the computerized GED exam for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The HSE program gives adults who never finished high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
The entirely computer-based GED exam has four independent subject tests in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
You have the option to complete the four GED subject tests one at a time. GED testing can be done in English and Spanish.
The GED exam assesses skills and knowledge at that level of high school graduates.
Online GED testing was never an option. You needed to show up at an official GED testing site, but that has now changed with the arrival of an online, proctored GED testing option. See more below.

Introducing an online GED testing option
Taking the GED test online was never possible. It could only be done at state-designated GED testing sites. It was simply not offered over the internet. To acquire a Georgia GED diploma, personal appearance at an official test center was required.
But that is changing. There is now an option to take the GED test online. If you take the online GED exam, you will be guided by an online proctor who checks if all happens according to strict regulations. Visit this post: ‘online GED testing option’ for more information.
The four GED tests
The GED exam for high school equivalency testing consists of 4 separate tests that you are allowed to take one at a time, whenever you feel ready for that part, and you can only register for and pay for that part $40 per test – $160 for the entire battery). The four GED tests are on the subject areas of:
Literacy – 150 minutes (including a short break)
Math – 115 minutes
Science – 90 minutes
Social Studies – 70 minutes
When you successfully pass all four tests you will be awarded the GED diploma which is accepted all across America just like a regular high school diploma by local and federal government institutions, colleges and universities, and employers.
Preparation is the key to success for the GED diploma. Contact one of the facilities listed above if you want to attend classes that are mostly offered at no charge at all, including all study materials. Check out also online GED courses and study books are available at local bookstores and community libraries.
