Provincial Exams and Assessments
Students graduating under the 2018 Graduation Program are required to write two provincial assessments. Students will write a Graduation Numeracy Assessment prior to graduation. A Literacy Assessment will be introduced in the 2019/20 school year. Students who are graduating this school year, will write the corresponding provincial exam for English 12 or Communications 12.
Graduation Numeracy Assessment (GNA) Information
Students are now required to write the Graduation Numeracy Assessment as a graduation requirement. Students are encouraged to write the numeracy assessment starting in their grade 10 year. The assessment is based on math concepts learned in multiple subjects from K-10 with an emphasis on K-9. The exam is electronic and is comprised of 24 online questions, two written response questions and a self-reflection. The GNA is graded using a 4-point scoring rubric and score (proficiency level of 1-4) will appear on the student’s transcript. Students can re-take the assessment to improve their proficiency score. More information about the assessment can be found on the Ministry of Education website: https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/assessment/numeracy-assessment
EBUS Academy will arrange the graduated numeracy assessment for full-time EBUS students in January and June. Cross-enrolled students must arrange to write the GNA through their home school.

Provincial Exam (English 12/ Communications 12) Information
Provincial exams have TWO main sessions – January and June. The dates and times for these exams are set by the Ministry of Education. There is also an August provincial exam session. The Communications 12 and English 12 provincial exam is worth 40% of the final grade, so it is important to study and be prepared for the exam. For the course to be completed and appear on the transcript, students must complete the course work at EBUS and write the provincial exam. The average of these two marks needs to be 50% or greater.
EBUS Academy will arrange the provincial exam for English 12 or Communications 12 for students who have taken the course with EBUS. If you want to write the January English 12 or Communications 12 provincial, you need to aim to be 50% or more complete in your course work by DECEMBER 1. For the June exams, you should be 50% or more by May 1.
