Diploma Exam Details

Students looking to rewrite a diploma exam, and are not enrolled in an Edmonton Public Schools’ Summer School course, are required to register at Bonaventure Gate (Alberta Provincial Writing Centre) through Alberta Education.

Students are expected to attend all summer school courses and to write diploma exams, for the above courses, upon completion of summer school classes. Please plan your holidays accordingly. Adjustments will not be made to examination starting dates.

Students are encouraged to contact their post-secondary institution to request a document deadline extension if they are hoping to use summer courses for fall entry to a university or college. Depending on the year, these document extensions are not always available.
