This is an overview of all GED® class locations and testing sites in the Yuba City, California, region.
California is using the entirely computerized GED exam for the state’s HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.
Additionally, the state welcomed the HiSET and TASC alternatives for this purpose. These two exams are available both on-paper and on-computer.
All three options measure knowledge at the level that may be expected of graduating high school students. For eligibility criteria go to GED in California.
Holding the HSE credential will lead to better-paying jobs and qualifies for continued education in college or university.
The GED (General Education Development) 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.
Online HSE testing is NOT offered. You must report to an official California HSE testing center and sit for the tests in person.
In March 2016, the passing score for each GED module was reduced to 145. Read more in this GED News-Post. HiSET and TASC are scored in their own way.
You may also very well benefit also from these free practice tests for your HSE exam.

Lower GED passing score
The four GED 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 practice tests for your GED exam.
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 and TASC 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) 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!
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. 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.
