Admissions Testing

Student Readiness Assessment (ACCUPLACER)

* Starting September 1st the ACCUPLACER will replace the current test (CAT 4) as our Student Readiness Assessment.                      

Many programs require English and/or Math skills for admission. You may be required to write a Student Readiness Assessment (SRA) if:

  • You have not taken the required English or Math courses listed in your program's admission requirements.
  • You have been out of school for several years.
  • You are an international or out-of-province applicant.

We will let you know if you are required to write the SRA as part of the application or selection process.

Please note you may retake the SRA after two weeks.

Study Materials

Please refer to the College Board ACCUPLACER Next Generation website for ACCUPLACER practice questions.

Taking your Student Readiness Assessment

You must have a current CNC student number and have applied for a CNC course or program to write the test. You must also pay the testing fee ($20 plus gst), prior to your test date.

After the request is received and approved, the Academic Success Centre staff will email the testing instructions to the school/proctor you have identified.

A suitable proctor is someone who works full time in an academic or administrative role at a college, university, high school or public library. Students and proctors cannot be related in any way, nor live at the same address. You may not use an employer, coach, friend or business associate as a proctor. CNC reserves the right to refuse any proctor who it deems to be inappropriate.
