GED Classes Vicksburg, Mississippi

In this article, we have listed all GED® prep facilities and test centers in the Vicksburg region. Mississippi is using three options for the state’s HSE (high school equivalency) exam, the GED, HiSET, and TASC.

The HSE exam offers adults who did not finish high school another shot at earning an equivalent degree.

The GED is totally computerized while the TASC and HiSET are offered both on paper and on a computer.

The GED exam contains four independent subtests that cover Literacy, Social Studies, Science, and Math.

HiSET and TASC contain five testing fields as the Literacy parts are split up into separate writing and reading tests.

All three HSE exam tests measure knowledge at a level similar to what high school seniors must know upon graduation.

The four GED subtests (modules) can be completed one (or more) at a time and the five HiSET or TASC tests can be taken independently as well.

There never was any online HSE testing option. That has changed now with the arrival of online HiSET and GED testing options. For more information, check below.

Online HiSET and GED options

You never could take the HiSET, GED, or TASC exam online but recently, that has all changed. You were always required to come personally to one of Mississippi’s official HSE testing locations.

Now, however, we witnessed the arrival of both GED and HiSET options to deal with the exams in an online format. You can read more about the online HiSET exam here: Online HiSET testing welcomed, and for more online GED testing information, go to GED online testing option introduced.

HSE testing

The purpose of the GED, TASC, and HiSET tests is to help individuals who didn’t finish their high school education. The HSE (high school equivalency) exam allows people to earn the necessary credential to continue their academic education at a college or technical school, and improve their options on the employment market.
