As of June 30th, 2016 the provincial examination requirements have changed for grade 10 and 11 courses that were previously examinable. Students not having taken a Math 10 provincial exam will be required to write a provincial math skills assessment prior to graduation; students having already completed a Math 10 and written the associated provincial exam are exempt from the math skills assessment. At this time, graduating students in 2016-2017 must still take a Language Arts 12 (or equivalent) and write the associated provincial exam; this requirement is expected to be replaced in the following school year with a provincial literacy assessment for those students not graduating by June 2017.
