Diploma Rewrites - January 2017

  • If you are planning to rewrite a diploma exam in January, please take notice that the deadline to register and pay for your exam through MyPass is November 17th.  Please see Ms. Dodd in the Main Office for instructions.

 

Grade 12 students write diploma exams in either January or June. The Alberta Education website link has exemplars of student writing from previous diploma exam sittings. These are valuable because they present models of what an average or proficient or excellent paper looks like!
