    Provincial examinations are available in many of the academic courses developed by the NB Department of Education and Early Childhood and taught in the public high schools and community colleges. Individuals who pass the examination will receive an academic credit for that course.


    To write a provincial examination in New Brunswick, you must
    1) be at least sixteen years of age
    2) submit the registration form and the required fee.


    Individuals wishing to write a Provincial examination must first register with the Department and submit the $10.00 fee.

    Exams are available in many academic courses. Individuals may write three times in one year with no wait time between the first and second writing. There is a six month waiting period between any subsequent writings.

    The pass mark on a Provincial examination is 60%. Those who have taken the course at a community college or through correspondence may use their classmark as 60% of their final mark, providing they make at least 50% on the provincial examination.
