I have recently immigrated to Canada where I'm staying in London,Ontario and

I have asked to enroll in 12 th grade in a public school,

I have an initial assessment in a few days for English and maths and

I have not been able to find any resources to study the maths portion of the exam ,

I would like to know if there is any outline or specific portion coming and if there any samples that I could make use of

Thank you.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be concerned about this situation.

Unfortunately, we do not have specific information regarding what will be included as part of the exam.

However, you can find some very general information related to this process in the Settlement.Org How is my child assessed to start school in Ontario? article.

Here is an excerpt,

The mathematics assessment is based on the standard requirements for Ontario schools. The assessment takes into account a student's ability to communicate in English. The student may be able to complete part of the test in his or her first language.



You may want to try and contact the nearest Newcomer Reception Centre to see if they can provide you with any additional information or guidance.

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.
