Re-write Final Examinations

In addition to these summer courses, there will be re-write final examinations for the following subjects:

  • Secondary 4/Grade 10: Science Options (Environmental Science & Technology, Science & the Environment)
  • Secondary 5/Grade 11: English, Math, Chemistry 504 & Physics 504

These re-write exams will be available to students who did not pass the course or who wish to upgrade their final mark.  To qualify for a re-write final examination, the student must have previously taken the course.

These re-write final exams are scheduled from July 30th to August 3rd, 2018.  An exam schedule will be posted on the WQSB website showing what re-write exams are being offered, the dates and times of each re-write exam; upon registration, you will also receive the schedule. Prior to then, please refer to the WQSB website or contact the summer school principal at summerschool@wqsb.qc.ca.

Certification Requirements

Students must accumulate 54 credits, 20 of which must be at the Secondary V level. The compulsory credits are:

  • Secondary 5/Grade 11 English (6 credits)
  • Secondary 5/ Grade 11 French (4 credits)
  • Secondary 4/Grade 10 Mathematics (4 credits or 6 credits)
  • Secondary 4/ Grade 10 Science and Technology (4 credits) or Applied Science and Technology (6 credits)

Expected dates to receive the final June 2018 marks in a course

Secondary 4/Grade 10 Math, History & Science as well as Secondary 5/ Grade 11 English and French have Ministry of Education (MEES) uniform final exams in June.  School marks for these courses are moderated by the Ministry of Education, and the final mark in these courses is determined by the Ministry, NOT by the particular school.  Consequently, the final June mark in these courses is NOT given on the final school report – instead, the final mark for these courses is given on the Ministry of Education Statement of Marks, which you should receive by mail during the first or second week of July.

The school regulates all courses other than those mentioned above. The final mark for these courses appears on the final school June report card, which you should receive during the first week of July.  Thus, some students may have to register for a summer course before they know if they need to take it.  Students/parents can call or come in to summer school to inquire about marks if you have not received your transcript. If a student registers for a summer course, then finds out from either the school report or the Ministry of Education report that it is not necessary, there will be a full refund.

Refund Policy and Attendance Policy

Full refund – If a summer course is cancelled or if a student registers for a summer course and then finds out from either the school report or the Ministry of Education report that they have in fact passed the course, they will be refunded for the course.

Partial refund – If a student withdraws from a course for a reason other than course cancellation, they will receive a partial refund.

No refund – There will be no refund if a student withdraws (or is expelled from Summer School) from a course for any other reason than those stated above.

Attendance – Students are expected to attend 100% of their summer school courses, unless there is a medical emergency, accompanied by a medical note.
