What's the difference between the GED and the HiSET? Which test should I take?
- The tests are comparable in terms of difficulty, but there are some differences in format. Massachusetts HSE candidates can now combine passing subject tests from both tests. The GED is only available on the computer. HiSET offers both paper-based and computer-based testing. Testers are encouraged to compare the tests to determine which is the better option for them.
