Diploma Exam Prep

The resources on this page are provided to assist our students as they prepare for their diploma exams. There are a number of different ways to prepare for an exam. Some tips from the University of British Columbia on studying include:

  1. Space it out, don’t do it all at once
  2. Test yourself in the same way you will be tested on the exam
  3. Lose the electronics
  4. The Great Triad: Eat, sleep, and exercise

 Another great resource to check out is the Edutopia research-backed studying techniques. Both of these sites offer some great ideas on how to study. 

When it comes to the content, there are a number of free resources that students can access. Check out the information below which includes practice exams, exemplars,  scoring guides, and unit tests.

If you have any questions about your diploma exam, contact your teacher or school administrator.
