Upgrade/Repeat Grade 11 & 12 Courses

Please note that as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and the government’s recommendation of social distancing, OVS is providing flexible solutions that will allow final exams to be written from the comfort and safety of the student’s home.

Upgrade courses allow students who have already taken a course to retake it in order to improve their understanding and mark in as quickly as 3 weeks.

Upgraded courses cover the same Ministry expectations as the original course. However, students should be able to progress through the course at a faster pace.

To qualify for an Upgrade Credit Course, the student needs to have taken the course before. After you register, send evidence of your prior enrollment in the course you are upgrading.

If you are interested in upgrading a course, please add a course(s) you wish to register for to the shopping cart and checkout when ready to proceed.
