Provincial Examination
Reviews, Re-Marks, and Rewrites

Exam Review Requests

Students wishing to view their exam responses may do so through the exam review process. Exam reviews can be helpful:

1. to determine whether to pay for an exam re-mark

2. for preparing for an exam rewrite

To begin this process, students need to contact their school in order to obtain the Review Request Form that is accessible from the School Secure Web. The form must be signed by both the school principal and the student before submission to the Ministry. Exam review requests can take up to 5-7 business days to process.

Exam Re-mark Requests

If you question a mark received on a centrally marked provincial examination, you may request to have the exam re-marked within a specific time period and for a fee. Check for current deadlines and fee for exam remarks in Ch.1 of the Handbook of Procedures.

Once you have confirmed that your exam remark request is within the permitted deadline, use this form to send a written request to the ministry: Provincial Examinations Re-Mark Request Form (PDF, 121KB).

Exam Rewrites

Students may rewrite a provincial exam once within the 12-month period following the first attempt at the examination. The 12-months are inclusive (e.g., from the June examination session, one year through to the end of the June examination session of the next year). To rewrite a provincial examination more than once, a student must retake the course.

For more information about how to register to write an exam, please refer to the Rewrite section in the Handbook of Procedures.

Note: As results from the August Exam Session are not released until the first week of September, they will not be available for September post-secondary institutions' admissions decisions.
