The HiSET® exam is one of three tests (GED®, HiSET®, and TASC) U.S. states and territories use to measure high school equivalency skills. Educational Testing Services (ETS) works closely with states to ensure the HiSET® exam closely reflects the skills of a high school graduate and to provide a fair, rigorous exam.
The HiSET® exam is made up of five subtests: Language Arts – Reading, Language Arts – Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The five subtests vary from 65 – 120 minutes. The Language Art – Writing subtest is multiple choice with an essay prompt, while the remaining subtests are only multiple choice. The questions reflect College and Career Readiness Standards to ensure that you are prepared for employment and/or post-secondary education once you have earned your credential. If you do not pass any of the five subtests on your first try, you can retake each subtest twice within twelve months
