The High School Equivalency Test or HiSET (formerly GED exam) is a nine-hour test taken over two days and includes tests of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. The High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) began in January 2014 and gives adults and out-of-school youth an opportunity to demonstrate their academic skills and earn the New Hampshire High School Equivalency Certificate. More information on the HiSET tests can be found at www.nhadulted.org.
