Challenge Exams

Didn't get the mark you wanted or needed on your Alberta diploma exam? Have you been out of school for a while and didn't write a diploma exam or take the course you need for post-secondary admission? Don't want to take or retake the entire course? We can help.

NorQuest College offers you the ability to challenge a High School (Grade 12) equivalency course by writing an exam that tests you on the content of the entire course. Your final grade is recorded on a NorQuest College transcript which you can use as proof of admission requirements at Alberta and Canadian universities, colleges, and technical institutes.

*Some institutions may not accept high school equivalency courses for admission to certain programs. Review the admission requirements of the program to which you plan to apply.
