GED in Texas

Texas is using two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED® and HiSET® exams. HSE testing offers individuals who never completed high school the chance to acquire a credential that’s equivalent to a high school diploma.

Upon successful completion of one of the HSE tests, students will receive the Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency (TxCHSE).

The GED test is only available in a computer-based format whereas the HiSET is offered both on paper and on a computer.

The GED includes four separate subtests (modules) in Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies while the HiSET has separate reading and writing subtests (so five in total).

The GED modules may be taken separately and the HiSET modules may, if wished, also be taken separately.

Online HSE testing is now possible as well. Testing was exclusively done at state-designated testing centers but the GED and HiSET organizations have introduced proctored, online testing as well (check below).

Texas GED testing requirements

In Texas, you need to be 16 years old, though 16 & 17-year-olds need to meet additional strict requirements. Please get in touch with a major prep site or a testing center near you.

So at 18, you may register for the Texas HSE test without any further restrictions but 16 or 17-year-olds must, for example, be officially withdrawn from public school and have consent from a parent or guardian. 16 year-olds may also qualify if they submit a court order indicating they can get a GED.

Test-takers do not have to take any prep course or take the GED Ready® practice test or another practice first.

GED-HiSET applicants must be Texas residents who don’t hold a high school diploma and are not engaged in any other school program.

GED prep classes in Texas

There are so many reasons why people did not finish High School. Whatever the reason, you still have a chance to get a good job and manage your future, all you need to do is get your GED.

You can prepare for the GED test very well by studying online but you may also choose a traditional GED prep class at a Texas education center near you. Click on your nearest city to discover all the options.

The four GED and five HiSET subtests measure key skills, knowledge, and concepts at a level that may be expected of students that had four years of standard high school education. The GED and HiSET exams offer a great opportunity for adults who did not graduate from high school to acquire a credential that is generally accepted as equivalent to a high school diploma.

Online GED-HiSET testing

The GED and HiSET needed to be taken in person at an official testing center, but that has changed. The HiSET is now also offered in an online version and also GED Testing Service has introduced an online proctored version of the GED exam.

GED-HiSET price and retests

The computer-based GED exam includes four modules that cost $36.25 each in Texas so $145 in total. If you fail a subject test, you can take two retests without having to wait for some time. If you need to take that subtest for the third time, you’ll have to respect a waiting period of 60 days before you can take that test again.

Per GED subtest, you’ll receive two retakes at a reduced rate of just $16.26 for the fee of the test center. This offer counts for one year after which regular fees count again ($36.25 per subject test).

The HiSET fee for each of the five subtests is $10.75 for computer-based testing and $15 for paper-based testing. You receive three retakes per subject test at a reduced rate of $15 each (just test center and state fees apply) and this offer is valid for 12 months. So at all times, a Texas State fee applies ($5 per individual subtest, also for retesting), and there is a Test Center fee ($10 for each subtest, also retesting).

So the Texas HiSET subtests cost $ $25.75 each ($128.75 in total) when taken on a computer, and $30 each ($150 in total) when taken in a paper-based format.

Brighter future

In the U.S. we can find millions of adults who do not have a high school diploma. Passing the Texas HSE exam will open doors to colleges and universities, and improve chances for better income and new careers. This article lists all GED/HiSET prep facilities in Texas. You’re also welcome to check our article about how to sign up for the GED exam with MyGED.

Two options

The GED includes four sections (modules) that can be taken separately (language arts, science, math, and social studies). The HiSET exam has separate reading and writing sections, so five in total that may also be dealt with separately. In the state of Texas, you can take the HiSET and GED exams in English and Spanish.

GED, HiSET passing scores

The GED passing score is 145 on a 100-200 scale.

GED scoring is as follows:
100-144: Below passing score
145-164: Passing score (high school equivalency)
165-174: College ready score
175-200: College ready Plus college credit score

HiSET scoring takes place on a scale up to 20 and the passing score on each of the five subtests is 8. You must attain at lease a 2-score (out of 6) on the HiSET essay and your overall score must be at least 45.

Free GED online prep in Texas

It doesn’t matter whether you dropped out of high school recently or that you did not finish many years ago if you want to get ahead, the GED (General Education Development) program will be the right thing to sign up for. The GED if fully computer-based while the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is offered in both paper-based and computerized formats.

If you go to the online portal MyGED (at the website GED.com), you need to create your personal account so you can get unprecedented support while preparing and taking the GED exam to earn your diploma. Registration and test scheduling have become absolutely easy and are available 24/7 at the online GED office.

HSE testing – How to begin

Contact a GED or HiSET prep location or a test center near you and see if you qualify to sign up for the Texas HSE program. The HSE program is not for everybody: you can not have a high school diploma or be registered for any other school program. Learn about requirements and regulations and a student may also request financial aid if he or she qualifies.

Get well prepared. Your local bookstore or library can supply material and there are a few pretty good online courses, but the best way to prepare is probably learning with an online course in combination with attending a GED or HiSET prep class at a Texas prep site (mostly totally free of charge, check above at a city near you).

It also makes sense to take a practice test to discover your strong and weak areas. This way you’ll learn what areas to focus on most. You may well benefit from this website’s free help (video lessons and practice tests) on your phone, tablet, or computer without even having to leave an email address or any other personal data.

Think about a good strategy that will help you to pass the exam. The GED test still has multiple choice questions left, although some were replaced by essay-style answering. Find the best strategy to come up with the right answers. Doing this will boost your confidence and your scores. On taking the test, think of the strategies you learned.

The GED diploma is the equivalency of a common high school diploma and is all across America accepted as such by employers, colleges, and government institutions.

The GED and HiSET exams offer adults a chance to demonstrate their educational level when compared to graduating high school seniors. The high school equivalency diploma that you receive upon successful completion of the exam will improve job options and open doors to a college education. This website offers free GED Texas practice tests and highly effective video lessons. More practice tests are available at GED.com. Either way, get ready and become perfectly prepared.
