The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) is a diploma awarded by the province of Ontario, Canada, to students who successfully complete the secondary school curriculum and meet the province's graduation requirements. The OSSD is typically required for students who wish to attend a post-secondary institution or enter the workforce. To earn the OSSD, students must complete a certain number of compulsory and optional credits in a variety of subject areas, as well as fulfill other requirements such as community service and passing a literacy test.

OSSD credit requirements
The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test is conducted when students are in grade 10 to test students' English reading and writing skills. If a student fails the first exam, then this student can retake this examination until grade 12. If a student still has not passed the English test in grade 12, then this student can meet this high school graduation requirement by taking an additional English credit course before graduation.
For international students, Canada School Board admits graduation certificates from many countries, but only equivalent to a maximum 23 credits. The other 7 credits have to be completed in Canada. Students whose native language is not English also need to pass English Proficiency Test such as IELTS, TOEFL to meet Canadian and American university admission requirements.

Placement tests are exams that are used to determine which level of a class or program a student is suitable for. To ensure that all our students will be given the best opportunity to succeed in our school, we have designed a mathematics terminology diagnostic test for all our non-domestic students. The primary purpose of this test is determined if a student is adequately equipped to read and comprehend mathematical terminologies at the appropriate level in the English language. Based on the student’s performance on this test, our staff at EMC will formulate an individualized study plan to help the student improve his/her reading skills in mathematics in the shortest possible time.
Below is the diagnostic test which holds many example questions for students to check and try out.
