In this article, we have listed all GED® prep facilities and test centers in the Vicksburg region. Mississippi is using two options for the state’s HSE (high school equivalency) exam, the GED and HiSET® exams.
HiSET and GED testing can be done online or at an official Mississippi HSE test center.
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 HiSET is offered both on paper and on a computer.
The GED exam contains four independent subtests that cover Literacy, Social Studies, Science, and Math.
The HiSET contains five testing fields as the Literacy parts are split up into separate writing and reading tests.
Both 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 tests can be taken independently as well.
Until recently, there was no online HSE testing option. That has changed now with the arrival of online HiSET and GED testing options. For more information, check below.

GED and HiSET scoring
After passing one of the two HSE exams, you will be awarded the Mississippi HSE diploma which opens the doors towards a college education and will surely lead to improved employment chances.
The GED subtests are measured on a scale from 100 to 200 scale and for each test, the passing score is 145. Averaging is not possible. The GED subtests (or modules) may take one at a time. The HiSET is also modular.
GED passing score: 145 (out of 200). HS equivalent score: 145-165. College-ready: 165-175 and a score in the 175-200 range will also result in extra college credits.
HiSET passing score: 8 (out of a possible 20). Overall HiSET score (5 tests): at least 45. Essay minimum score: 2 (out of a possible 8).
