January Exam Exemption/Aegrotat Standing for students on track to Graduate in March

Students who were registered to write in January and would have been able to graduate in the month of March 2022 (after January results were released) are still able to do so. An Exemption or an Aegrotat Standing may be provided on the student transcript, indicating that the requirement has been waived. (Exemptions apply to Grade 10 and 12 Literacy Assessments, and an Aegrotat Standing is used for the Grade 10 Numeracy Assessment.)

Students should work with their schools to determine their eligibility for Exemption/Aegrotat Standing. IMPORTANT: Please email Ms. Enns at no later than March 4th if you believe you are eligible.  Once the Ministry reviews and confirms students’ exemption eligibility, the Ministry will apply these to student records. Schools can use MyED to be able to gather this information.

Exemptions will start being applied by the end of March, when the January results were originally scheduled to be released.

Exemptions will only apply to students who were otherwise on track to graduate early in March 2022 but missed writing one or more Provincial Assessments due to the January session cancellation. This includes both the Grade 10 and 12 Literacy Assessments. Exemptions are not an accepted indicator for the Grade 10 Numeracy Assessment, but an Aegrotat Standing may be applied in these cases.

Students will see “XMT” listed on their transcript for LTE10 and 12, LTF12 and “AEG” for NME10 or NMF10 in these instances.
