If you are at least 17 and left school without a diploma, the HiSET® might be the way for you to earn a high school credential. Accepted by colleges and employers, the HiSET tests allow you to demonstrate your knowledge in five subject areas. Learn about HiSET® preparation classes and testing requirements, take a practice test, and get ready to move forward with your life.
ETS High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) has replaced the GED as Maine’s High School Equivalency Assessment. The HiSET consists of the following five subtests: Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Science, Social Studies, Mathematics. A passing score on each subject test is a scaled score of 8 out of 20, but learners must achieve a total scaled score of 45 to successfully achieve their high school equivalency diploma. Learners that achieve a scaled score of 15 or higher on each subject test are designated as College and Career Ready.
Testing is computer-based. (Paper-based testing is only available with accommodations through ETS.) There is no fee for Maine residents to prepare for and take the HiSET. We provide HiSET testing, preparation materials, pre-tests, and instruction.
