GED Nevada- FAQ

How to get a GED in Nevada?

In Nevada, adults wishing to earn their high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, have three alternative options, the GED, HiSET, and TASC exams. GED® testing comes with four (4) individual modules (subtests) while the HiSET and TASC contain five (5) subtests as the Literacy part on these tests is split up into separate writing and reading tests.

The four GED modules cover the academic fields of Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts), Science, Social Studies, and Math (Mathematical Reasoning).

What are Nevada GED testing requirements?

In Nevada, GED test-takers must be at least 16 years old but for 16 and 17-year olds, some pretty strict requirements apply such as having written parental consent and they need to be officially withdrawn from the school they last attended. GED, TASC, and HiSET applicants need to be Nevada residents.

Who qualifies for the Nevada GED test?

All three high school equivalency tests are for adult learners who quit high school prematurely. This way they have the chance to earn a credential that is equivalent to a high school diploma.

Successful test-takers are awarded the Nevada High School Equivalency Certificate, a document that is across the nation accepted in lieu of a high school diploma by educational institutions, federal and state government agencies, and employers.

Where are GED online practice tests in Nevada?

To get properly prepared for the Nevada HSE exam, students should take as many practice tests as possible. Some students prefer to partake in a traditional GED prep class where they can learn through GED practice tests under the guidance of a tutor and others like to get all set by working with GED prep books from the local library or bookstore.

More and more GED hopefuls, however, use online GED practice tests available over the internet, usually at no cost. Online learning has become very popular and offers great study options for Nevada students living in remote areas.

What is the GED cost in Nevada?

In Nevada, GED testing costs $30 for each subject test ($120 for the entire GED exam). The TASC and HiSET exams are a bit more affordable. For GED testing, applicants need to set up an account on GED.com/MyGED. The GED, HiSET, and TASC subtests may be taken, if wished, one at a time. The GED is fully computerized while the HiSET and TASC are offered both on paper and on a computer.

Is there a Nevada GED online test?

No, online GED, TASC, or HiSET testing is not possible. The Nevada high school equivalency test is exclusively administered at official, state-designated, testing sites. Getting properly prepared for the Nevada HSE test through an online GED prep course if perfectly okay but to take one of the three HSE tests, students need to show up personally at one of Nevada’s official testing sites. Please note that not all Nevada testing sites offer all of the three options.

Where are Nevada online GED classes?

There are students who learn better in the environment of a traditional classroom under the supervision of a teacher and some students prefer to use GED prep books from a library to get all set for the Nevada HSE test.

However, an increasing number of GED hopefuls opt for an online GED prep class that includes video lessons. Online learning is very engaging and offers fantastic opportunities for GED students in remote Nevada areas. Be aware, though that online learning requires self-discipline and is for students who understand what it takes to study independently.

Is the Nevada GED available on paper?

The GED is a fully computerized test. There’s no more paper-based GED testing available. That’s a thing of the past. The HiSET and TASC, however, are still offered on paper and in a computer-based format.
