Learn about graduation assessments

Yukon high school students write the same graduation assessments as BC students.

Students must write a:

  • Grade 10 Numeracy Assessment; and
  • Grade 10 and Grade 12 Literacy Assessment before they finish high school.

The numeracy and literacy assessments replace the BC Provincial Exams (BCPEs) that students used to write. This change is part of the changes to the school curriculum.

The new graduation assessments are being integrated between 2018 and 2021.

  • BC introduced the Grade 10 Numeracy Assessment in 2018.
  • The Grade 10 Literacy Assessment is being introduced during the 2019–20 school year.
  • The Grade 12 Literacy Assessment will be introduced during the 2020–21 school year.

Check out these helpful guides for parents to learn more about these assessments.
