In this article, you can find all GED prep locations and test centers in the Starkville region. Mississippi uses two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED and HiSET exams.
The GED and HiSET are available in an online format and at state-designated HSE test centers.
The exams offer persons who left high school before graduation another shot at securing an equivalent degree.
The GED® is completely computer-based while the HiSET® is offered both on-paper and on-computer.
Testing takes place at a level that compares to that of HS seniors upon graduation.
The GED exam includes four subtests in Science, Social Studies, Math, and literacy that can be completed one at a time.
The HiSET has five subtests (Literacy has writing and reading subtests) that can as well be taken separately.
Online HSE testing was, until recently, not an option. But the HiSET and GED exams are now available in an online format as well. Learn more below.

GED and HiSET online testing introduced
There was, until recently, no possibility to sit for the GED or HiSET exam via the internet. You were always required to show up, in person, at a state-designated HSE test location but now, HiSET and GED testing has also become available online. But now, however, that has changed

Applicants wishing to take the Mississippi High School Equivalency exam must have been Mississippi residents for at least 30 days, be 18 years of age, not have a secondary degree, nor be engaged in secondary school, and have been out of school for no less than three months. Those applicants 16 and 17 years old may be eligible to take the HSE exam if they meet specific regulations.
So for people who don’t have a high school diploma, the GED test (General Educational Development) may very well be the perfect track. The GED tests are modular and you can take them separately. The HiSET is also modular. All three HSE exams measure your skills and knowledge at the level of high school grads.
When you passed one of the three options, you will be awarded the Mississippi high school equivalency diploma. The credential allows you to apply to college or go for better employment. The GED tests are scored on a 100-200 scale and the passing score on each subtest is 145. the HiSET has its own scoring system.
