Test Centre

CBe-learn is returning to in-person exams for core courses for the 2022-2023 school year with our Test Centre opening in October 2022. Students can expect to write their exams in-person at CBe-learn. Please continue to check this webpage for updates and consult each course for specific information regarding planned assessments.

In-Person Exams

Students in most core academic courses will have a midterm, cumulative or final exams. There will be a maximum of 2 in-person exams per course. Students will receive information about the specific exam, including the dates available to write, from their academic course teacher from within their Brightspace (D2L) course. 

If you are late to an exam, you may still have the chance to write, but will have a reduced amount of time. Please plan your time wisely when booking in the Test Centre.

The Test Centre is located in Lord Shaughnessy High School: 2336 53 Avenue SW.

Enter at the Front Entrance (see map above) and look for signs with directions to your exam location. Parking for students can be accessed off 21st St SW, between Central Memorial High School and Lord Shaughnessy High School. Students can also park on the north side of 53rd Ave.

*Please do not park on the south side of 53rd Ave - this is permit parking for residents of the community only. A parking violation ticket will be issued if parked here.

Hours of Operation

Please check back soon for details regarding Test Centre hours of operation. 

Booking a Seat 

Please work with your teacher to book a seat in the Test Centre. 

Extra Time

Exams in our Test Centre are created to take no more than 1.5 hours to write. Our time slots are 3 hours long to allow all students to take up to double time. If you arrive late for your time slot you will still need to finish your exam when the time slot ends.


Other than extra time (granted to all students), any other accommodations noted in a student’s IPP must be made in advance with your teacher by sending them a private discussion message. Please follow their direction for accessing your IPP accommodations.
