What's the difference between the GED and the HiSET? Which test should I take?

Posted by:

- The tests are comparable in terms of difficulty; but there are some differences in format.  Testers should compare the tests to determine which is the better option for them.  For a comparison chart, go HERE.


- Successful completion of either test will result in earning a Masschusetts High School Credential.  The credential is viewed as the equivalent of a high school diploma by virtually all colleges and employers.  However, if you are considering joining the military, check with your recruiter to see if that branch has specific entrance requirements.
