We accept transcripts from the diverse academic systems, including Canadian High School, US High School, French Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, A-Levels, and other National curriculums and we will evaluate your transcript based on your current curriculum (we will not change your results to a different scale).

If you are currently not studying in an English language institution or do not reside in a country where English is the acknowledged primary language, please submit any records you may possess that demonstrate your proficiency in English. If an English course is not listed on your transcript (such as GCSE English, SL/HL English A) please submit an English proficiency test such as TOEFL, IELTS, or SAT ECRW. Other options are detailed on our website. If needed, please merge these scores or documents with your transcripts into a single (1) PDF document.
