TENS

As an adult, you have acquired skills and competencies relative to those taught at a High School level. If you have not yet obtained your High School Diploma (DES), TENS offers you the opportunity to receive an equivalency certificate (AESS – Attestation of Equivalency of Secondary Studies). In order to receive your attestation, you must successfully complete the following exams:

Three mandatory examinations:
  • English Comprehension
  • English Grammar
  • French as a second language
Two optional examinations (choice out of four):
  • Social Sciences
  • Natural Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Economics

It is important to note that the TENS examination does not replace a DES (Diploma of Secondary Studies). The TENS certificate will help you when applying for jobs that require a DES or an equivalency as well as applying to CEGEP-level programs (please verify with the CEGEP in question).

Registration Requirements
  • You must be 16 years old, as of June 30th of the current year to complete the examination
  • Cost of examination: $30
  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your examinations in order to complete the registration process
