This Week at Options: English 12 Provincial Exam Prep, Write Well Workshop: Mastering the Essay & ACT Prep


Here is what’s happening at Options Solutions this week:

Saturday, April 6th (West Vancouver)

After working with students on provincial exam prep for many years, we have broken down the study process into a few steps and created a number of programs to assist students with their preparation. Start early & attend a Kick-Start Session for the English 12 Provincial Exam. This 2-hour session provides students with an introduction to exam content and format, literary terms, and strategies to tackle the essays and multiple choice questions.

The English 12 Provincial Exam is only a few months away and starting prep early is the key to mastering the exam. The exam is worth 40% of a student’s final English 12 mark, a mark which all universities use to calculate a student’s final admission average. Get a baseline score for the exam and start focusing your prep at the English 12 Mock Exam (+ debrief) session. Students complete a three-hour practice exam, followed by a two-hour debrief (at a later date) of the marked multiple choice and the essay questions.

While becoming a skilled writer is definitely a process, the best way to get there is to start. Our “Write Well Workshop: Mastering the Essay” series is designed to offer students productive ways of thinking about their writing journey and exercises to ease them into the practice of writing and editing. these sessions have been crafted to give students the essential skills they need to be successful writers in high school and beyond. We also want to help students prepare for the upcoming Graduation Literacy Assessment, which the BC Ministry has confirmed will be implemented for current grade 10 and younger students. We want to be sure our younger students have the skills they need to do well on this assessment, as it is recorded on their Ministry transcript.

Saturday, April 6th & Sunday, April 7th (West Vancouver)

The ACT Exam Prep Super Weekends are designed to deliver a concentration of exam prep. Each Super Weekend is situated before an official ACT or SAT test date and is meant to be a focused weekend of study. Students receive a strong grounding in how the test works and strategies for attaining a high score, combined with an opportunity to increase their overall academic performance.
