Language Challenge Exam

You can take the language challenge exam and, if you pass, you will get the same credit as if you took the course. This exam is only if you do not have a credit in that course already.

If you are interested in taking the exam, I have attached the application booklet (ChallengeExamApplicationPackage19)and below is a message from Ms. Fenn describing the application process:

  NOTE: All universities in Canada accept our Language Challenge exam marks. UBC accepts Challenge credits for pre-requisite and requirements for courses and second-language requirements but does not accept Challenge marks as part of the GPA calculation for admission. It is highly recommended that you check with your intended university for their admissions requirements.
