How do I know if I am ready for the GED or HiSET exams?


You can take the exams at any time, but there is no guarantee that you will pass. Most people need extra help to get ready for the exams.


If you take classes at ECC, your teachers will provide guidance about taking the exams. If you are in level 5, they will provide you with a free practice test that will indicate whether you are ready.
