Students in Alberta will be writing diploma exams this spring.

Education Minister Adriana LaGrange confirmed Monday (Apr. 4), on Twitter that Grade 12 diploma exams will be administered in April, June, and August.

The exams will temporarily be weighted at 10 per cent for the 2021-22 school year only.

In October of 2021, Alberta Education announced that the weight of Grade 12 diploma exams would count for 10 per cent of the student’s final mark as opposed to 30 per cent pre-COVID-19.
