Provincially Examinable Courses and Final Marks

Grade 10:
English 10, Math 10 and Science 10 are all required courses for graduation. The final mark for each of these courses is a blend of the school mark (worth 80%) and the provincial exam mark (worth 20%). Students must receive at least 50% overall on the blended mark in order to pass the course.

Grade 11:
Socials 11 is a required course for graduation. The final mark in this course is a blend of the school mark (worth 80%) and the provincial exam mark (worth 20%). Students must receive at least 50% overall on the blended mark in order to pass the course.

Grade 12:
English 12 or Communications 12 is a required course for graduation. The final mark in this course is a blend of the school mark (worth 60%) and the provincial exam mark (worth 40%). Students must receive at least 50% overall on the blended mark in order to pass the course.
Optional exams are offered for other Grade 12 courses: Spanish 12, Punjabi 12, Physics 12, Math 12, History 12, Geography 12, French 12, Chemistry 12 and Biology 12. Students, not the school, make the choice to write optional exams. If students choose to write these exams the marks are blended as noted in “Grade 12" above. Students who wish to register for any of these optional exams should do so at the school office.
Blended marks are not available until the provincial exams are marked. If students write their exam in January, the mark will be available in March. If students write their exam in June, the mark will be available in August.

PROVINCIAL EXAM INFO

Jan. 2007

Grade 12 provincial examinations are optional for students in the 2004 Graduation Program, with the exception of English 12 and Communications 12.

Any child choosing not to write a provincial exam must complete an application form obtained from the teacher, sign it and return it to the teacher.

Students have three years from the date of course completion to take the exam. They may register for any exam session in which the provincial exam is being offered. This provision only exists for students who have not taken any further courses in the subject area.

What is the impact of not writing the provincial exam?

Many post secondary institutions determine their admission based on course marks derived from provincial exams. By not writing a provincial exam this could impact your choice for post-secondary admission.
