Provincial Results

There are provincial tests in ‘S’ level (specialized) language arts and mathematics courses that students in the English Program, French Immersion Program, and Français Program are required to write.

These tests are administered at the end of each semester and count for 30 percent of students’ final course grades except for the Essential Mathematics test which counts for 20%, and reflect the learning outcomes described in the respective curricula.
