BC Courses
B.C. high school curriculum courses in the old and new curriculum can be found in the BC Curriculum Comparison Guide. It also outlines what is considered a science course, a career education course etc.

Locally Developed BAA Courses
Any locally developed Board/Authority Authorized (BAA) courses will be evaluated on an individual basis. BAA courses may be included in the overall average but not the core average.

For example, the following SD23 BAA courses will be included in the overall average.

  • Environmental Sciences 12
  • Canadian Literature 12
  • Psychology 11
  • Psychology 12
  • Statistics 12

  • Holocaust 12

Out-of-Province Courses
Courses taken outside of B.C. or courses taken through older curriculum will be evaluated on an individual basis. Courses from another province that are similar to the BC curriculum will be treated in the manner outlined below. For example, Ontario Psychology 12 will be included in the overall average but not the core average.

Advanced Placement Courses
