Grade 6 and 9 Provincial Exams
The Grade 6 and 9 province-wide tests are called "PATS", which stands for Provincial Achievement Tests. You can find information at https://education.alberta.ca/provincial-achievement-tests/overview/.
Please contact your teacher for the ASC exam schedule. The exams provide Alberta Education with information on each child in the province. However, Alberta Education also allows parents to opt their child out of the exams. This request must be made in writing to the principal.
Independent Study courses generally have exams which are written when done the course. This includes 30-level diploma course school finals. Check your course outline for details.
For students who are writing diploma exams, you will be given the dates for writing when you register for the course. These dates are set by Alberta Education, therefore cannot be changed. In order to write a diploma, you must be done the course, and have written the school exam. Check out our Diploma page for more information: http://asc.rdpsd.ab.ca/Diplomas.php
