Hi

I am moving to Canada this summer and as I made some research, it seamed like that I am supposed to take two exams.

One is an English exam and the other one is a math exam.

I want to know whether the score you get on the english exam has to do anything with the grade you go to or not.

Thank you,

Looking forward to your response.

Hello,
Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

It is great that you are looking into this type of information before arriving in Canada.

It is difficult for us to say which grade you will be accepted into.

As you already know, in secondary school, students usually take an assessment so that they can be placed in the right grade.

Generally, secondary school students who have recently arrived from other countries may have an initial assessment before they can enter a school.

Unfortunately, it is difficult for us to tell you which grade you will be in or how to prepare for this assessment.

However, you can find more information on enrolling in Secondary School here:

Newcomers' Guide to Secondary School - Public School Board

You may also find some helpful information in our Settlement.Org Which grade will my child enter when we move to Ontario? and How is my child assessed to start school in Ontario? articles.

You may also get some additional information on our NewYouth.ca website.

NewYouth.ca is your first link for accurate, accessible and easy-to-understand information about issues important to you - as a newcomer in particular, but also as a young Canadian.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
