BC universities lower admission exam requirements

December 12, 2007

BC's universities will reportedly require applicants in 2008 to write fewer provincial exams to qualify for admission.  uVictoria has already passed such changes, and UBC and SFU are expected to follow suit in the next month.  Students will be required to write only the same exams required to graduate high school: Grade 10 math & science, Grade 11 social studies and language arts, and Grade 12 language arts.  Currently, BC's students are required to write 8 provincial exams, including 4 at the Grade 12 level.
