GED Classes Yuba City, California

This is an overview of GED® class locations and testing sites in the Yuba City area.

California offers three options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the TASC, HiSET, and GED.

HSE testing gives persons who never completed high school one more shot at earning an equivalent diploma.

All three options measure knowledge at the level that may be expected of graduating high school students.

The GED has four individual subtests in Literacy, Social Studies, Math, and Science that must be dealt with in maximally two years.

The HiSET and the TASC exams include five tests as the literacy part has a test on writing and one on reading. These tests cannot be taken separately.

HiSET and TASC are offered on-paper and on-computer. The GED is entirely computerized.

Online HSE testing is NOT offered. You must report to an official California HSE testing center and sit for the tests in person.

GED vs. TASC and HiSET

The HSE diploma

The HSE (high school equivalency) program is especially for those adults who never finished high school and don’t hold a secondary education degree. The certificate that is awarded to successful HSE test takers is accepted as the equivalency of a standard high school diploma by practically all U.S. and Canadian employers, government agencies, and schools of higher education.

The HSE diploma indicates that you possess knowledge and master skills at the same level as graduating high school students. Holding the HSE credential will lead to better-paying jobs and qualifies for continued education in college or university.

Again, be aware that the HSE exam is not available over the internet, and you must show up personally at an official test center. In California, successful students will receive the California High School Equivalency Certificate.

Lower GED passing score

The four GED (General Education Development) testing fields are Math, Science, Social Studies, and Literacy. At the beginning of 2016, the GED passing score was adjusted. It went down from 150 to 145 points per individual test, and all details are available on our news pages. You may also be interested in our free GED practice tests.

GED-HiSET-TASC passing score

The latest (2014) edition of the GED examination has a passing scale that runs from 100 – 200. You are (since early 2016) required to score no less than 145 points on each individual test, so your total score cannot be less than 580 points. Averaging is not possible.

HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) and TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) are scored differently. On the HiSET students must attain at least 8 out of 20 points (on each test), score at least 2 points (out of a possible 6) on their essay, and have a total score of at least 45 points. The TASC requires a 500 score on each of the five subject tests (out of a possible 800), and no less than 2 for the essay part.

Is the HSE exam offered online?

No, there is not an online option to earn your HSE diploma. Though the new GED exam is entirely ‘digitalized’, you must appear at one of California’s designated GED testing sites and take the tests (one at a time, if you wish-only the GED!) in person. More and more websites try to make you think something different, but don’t get robbed by these con artists who only want to steal your dollars. The documents they issue have no value whatsoever and will not be accepted by colleges and employers!

Wat to be a Dentist?

After securing the GED credential, everything is possible. Many dentists are GED graduates who went on specializing to become dentists. Becoming a Dentist is one of the hardest career goals to accomplish, but also one of the most rewarding careers. To become a Dentist you are looking at seven or eight years of college education, at the minimum. It takes close to ten years to become a specialist in Dentistry.

Dentists diagnose and treat diseases of the gums, teeth, and mouth tissues. They also provide advice and care to help prevent further problems of the mouth and teeth. They remove and repair many types of mouth ailments, including cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, replace fractured teeth, place a protective coating on children’s teeth, straighten teeth, and examine x-rays to determine the best course of treatment. Dentists give advice on proper brushing methods, usage of floss and mouthwash, as well as nutritional information that can benefit your teeth. Dentists also remove diseased and broken teeth and make molds for dentures, bridges, and crowns. Their duties do not end with the teeth though. They also perform corrective surgery on gums and supporting bones to treat gum diseases.

Dental schools have a prerequisite of two years of general college classes before consideration of acceptance. Most Dental students have to have at least a Bachelors degree, before acceptance, although some schools will allow a student to enter Dental School while still working on their Bachelor’s degree. Most Dental Schools recommend a major or minor in some type of science, biology, or health being the most prevalent.

However, this is not necessary, as long as you have taken and passed the required courses, such as biology, health, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Before entrance into Dental School, prospective Dentists must take and pass the Dental Admissions Tests (DAT’s).

You must have high scores on these tests and high-grade point averages, as well as quality interviews and recommendations from Teachers and Staff. After all of this, you will still be looking at four years of Dental School to become a Dentist and an additional two years following if you are going to be a specialist. Finally, you must take the state licensing test before practicing as a Dentist.

The expected growth in jobs for Dentists is very high. With the fact that people are living longer and taking better care of their teeth, the need for Dentists will always be high. Also, people have a much better awareness of oral hygiene than they did fifty years ago. More people are going to the Dentist to keep their teeth healthy than ever before. Another trend to consider is the increased popularity of cosmetic procedures, such as braces, teeth whitening treatments, and color matching bridge and crown work. As long as people have teeth, they will need Dentists.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual salary for a General Dentist is close to $150,000. This salary can be higher if you are a specialist, such as an Orthodontist. This is all dependent on experience and location, but a $100,000 minimum salary for a Dentist is very possible. Even better, this salary only goes up as one gains experience. If you have the desire, drive, and perseverance, you can become a Dentist and have one of the most respected careers in the world.
