In Hawaii, you can get your GED diploma if you pass 4 GED subject tests. The GED exam is offered at state-designated Hawaii testing centers or online.
If candidates want to register for the GED® test or the GED Ready practice tests, they need to create their accounts on the official GED website, GED.com.

The Online GED Test
So GED testing can be done online as well. It used to be that GED testers had to show up at one of Hawaii’s official GED test centers and sit for the four subtests face-to-face, but the days of only that possibility have gone.
To qualify for the online GED exam, candidates must first attain “green” (likely to pass) results on the GED Ready® practice test. To read more about the GED-at-Home exam, check out The Online Proctored GED Test.
GED results are calibrated on a 100 to 200 scoring scale. The passing score on EACH of the four sub-exams is 145 points. There’s no averaging, so you’ll have to reach that 145-score on each of the sub-exams. No exceptions!
The passing score range is divided into three sections.
- 145-164 is the GED high school equivalent scoring range
- 165-174 is the GED college-ready scoring range
- 175-200 is the GED college-ready PLUS college credits range (up to 10 credits, depending on the college/university and the academic subject)
