 Are you ready to take the HiSET PRACTICE EXAM?

  1. Count the number of answers correct on each practice test listed above. Do not include questions you did not answer or that you answered incorrectly.

  2. Then find the number of questions you answered correctly in the table below to see an estimate of how ready you are to take the HiSET exam.

Subject Not yet Prepared Perhaps Prepared Prepared Well Prepared
Math 0-12 13-16 17-20 21+
Reading 0-11 12-14 15-16 17+
Writing 0-9 10-13 14-19 20+
Science 0-10 11-13 14-15 16+
Social Studies 0-9 10-11 12-15 16+
  • If you fall in the “Not yet prepared” or “Somewhat prepared” categories, you may want to do additional preparation before you take the exam.

  • Practice tests are intended to complement your preparation and classroom instruction. They will not fully prepare students for the actual HiSET exams.

  • Each practice test is approximately half the length of the HiSET exam and may not represent every type of item on the exam.

  • The “Well Prepared” category scores are not indicators of college and career readiness. They are meant to help provide guidance on the likelihood of a student passing the HiSET exam. Visit ets.org/tc_staff to learn how the HiSET exam reflects college and career readiness.
