HiSET

HiSet Test

The HiSET Test is a high school equivalency test that can give you the credentials that you need for your career or for college. Passing the exam indicates that you have comparable knowledge and skills of a typical high school graduate. The ETS HiSET Exam is similar to the GED Test and the TASC Test, but it’s designed to be more flexible, more accessible, and more affordable.

 

The HiSET exam is composed of five subtests in the following subjects:

  • Language Arts — Reading
  • Language Arts — Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies

You will be signed up for the practice subtest.  Once you demonstrate mastery you will be directed to take the actual HiSet.
