In order to acquire the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), students must complete a total of 30 credits from Grade 9 to Grade 12. In addition, they must pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). For university admission, students must complete at least six 4U/4M courses at the Grade 12 level. Otherwise, the students cannot apply for university, even if they have their OSSD. Students with OSSD are given preference for university admission.
Advanced Placement Courses give students the opportunity to learn university-level studies while still in high school. It is recognized for its excellence by the majority of the universities in Canada. Successful completion of AP courses provides students with the possibility of first-year university transfer credits, advanced placement or both. By earning university transfer credits or advanced placement, students can save both time and university tuition fees.
