Parent or Guardians of grade 12 students

Dear Parent or Guardians,

Royal Bay Secondary will be writing the Graduation Numeracy Assessment 10 (GNA 10) during the timeframe April 15 and April 16, 2020. The April sitting is the LAST sitting of the 2019/2020 school year.  All grade 12 students need to have this assessment completed in order to graduate.  Most students have written this over the last two years, but if they haven’t written it they need to make arrangements through the Royal Bay office.

Students are assessed on a four point proficiency scale  – Emerging, Developing, Proficient and Extending

  • There is no “pass” or “fail” – students must write the assessments in order to meet the BC grad requirements.  Students have a chance to rewrite the assessments if they like.
  • The mark is not blended with any subject as was the case with past provincial examinations.  The mark stands alone on the student’s transcript.

For more information about these assessments, use the following links:


Students are able to do a practice assessment using the same link.
