Diploma Exams

The government has cancelled all 2019-20 Grade 12 diploma exams. Under special circumstances, students can request to write a diploma exam. For more information, please review Alberta Education’s FAQ document on Education Continuity.​

Provincial tests are part of a balanced, broad-based program of student assessment. The results provide some of the information that guides our educators as they set targets for student achievement and track the results of school improvement initiatives. Visit the CBE website for more information on our students’ provincial testing​​.​​​

Students taking specific Grade 12 core subjects write provincial Diploma Examinations at the completion of the course which count for 30% of the student’s final mark. These courses in the CBE are:

  • English Language Arts 30-1
  • English Language Arts 30-2
  • French Language Arts 30-1
  • Mathematics 30-1
  • Mathematics 30-2
  • Biology 30
  • Chemistry 30
  • Physics 30
  • Science 30
  • Social Studies 30-1
  • Social Studies 30-2

More information on Diploma Exams can be found on the Alberta Education website​.
