Study guides

Book your exam early

In order for your name to go on the waitlist for the next program's start date, you need to have both completed the exam successfully AND submitted your proof of graduation (or letter from your school stating you will graduate for Grade 12 students). That is why it is in your best interest to book your exam as early as you can.
