Exams

Exam requirements vary. Teachers communicate a course's evaluation breakdown to students at the beginning of each course.

For most courses, exams are worth 30% and term work is worth 70% of the total final mark.

Some courses may not require a final exam, and a final project, presentation or essay may be assigned instead. For courses that do not set an exam, the final mark is made up of 70% term work and 30% from a culminating task. Reporting to parents occurs three times each semester using a progress report along with formal mid-term and final report cards.

Writing Exams

Exams are usually scheduled at the end of January and at the end of June. Exam dates are published well in advance.
