You can earn a state-issued High School Equivalency!
The HiSET® exam is made up of five subtests:
- Language Arts – Reading (65 minutes-English or 80 minutes-Spanish)
- Language Arts – Writing (120 minutes)
- Mathematics (90 minutes)
- Science (80 minutes)
- Social Studies (70 minutes)
You can schedule them all at once or one at a time, and you can take them in any order. The total test time is 7 hours and 5 minutes for English and 7 hours and 20 minutes for Spanish, not including breaks. Most test takers take the subtests on different days. With the HiSET exam, you have the flexibility to create an appointment schedule that is right for you.

Retake a Subtest
If you do not meet the minimum HiSET score requirements, you can take it again. You can only take a subtest up to three times in a calendar year, so we encourage you to study before scheduling your next appointment.
