Through July and August, we review these to ensure you:
Changes to applicants’ level of academic standing are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
*BC high school students graduating from June 2022 onwards are required to complete the Grade 12 Literacy Assessment to demonstrate high school graduation. If you are graduating before this date, UBC will not ask you to show any results from the exam.
UBC requires you to achieve “Proficient” on the Grade 12 Literacy Assessment to maintain your offer of admission. BC high school applicants who do not meet this level of proficiency will have their admission offers reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
If the April and June sittings of the Grade 12 Literary Assessments are cancelled by the BC Ministry of Education, UBC will not require a result from the exam to maintain your offer of admission.
