Provincial Exams

  • Well, tests ain’t fair. Those that study have an unfair advantage. It’s always been that way.

    — Allan Dare Pearce, Paris in April

    Provincial exams are some of the toughest exams of a student’s secondary school career. Let C2’s carefully selected and trained tutors help give your child an “unfair” advantage over his or her peers!

  • Here’s what we offer our students at different grade levels:

    Grade 10 Provincials (Math, Science, English):

    These are the first provincial exams a student takes during his or her secondary school years. They are worth 20% of the student’s overall grade in each subject, and are a preview and practice for the even more heavily-weighted Grade 12 provincials. C2’s teachers will help your child prepare for his or her first contact with the provincial exam, and ensure that he or she emerge victorious, and ready to tackle the more difficult, and even more critical, Grade 12 provincials.

    Grade 12 Provincials (English Only):

    This is the one that counts! With this exam accounting for 40% of a student’s overall grade in English 12, it is vital that your child is well-prepared for it. C2’s English teachers will help your child achieve the best possible score on this high-stakes exam, by making sure he or she is adept at recognizing literary and figurative devices, able to understand and analyze the fiction, non-fiction, and poetry passages that comprise the exam, and prepared to produce three well-crafted pieces of writing under time pressure.
