OSSLT Literacy Test

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test – OSSLT

Students are required to meet the provincial literacy requirement in order to earn an OSSD–Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Successful completion of the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test–OSSLT will satisfy this requirement.

Students will usually take the OSSLT literacy test in Grade 10. This test is scheduled and administered by the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) once each year at the end of March or the beginning of April. Students who do not successfully complete the OSSLT will have the opportunity to retake the test in subsequent years.

Students who have been eligible to write the OSSLT at least twice, and were unsuccessful at least once, are eligible to take the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course–OLC4O to fulfill the literacy requirement.

Where to write OSSLT

We organizes the OSSLT test administration every year for students whose Ontario Student Record (OSR) is held at Toronto eLearning School. The test can be written at TES Campus in Toronto. Students may also write the test at an alternative location in our affiliated partners’ office outside of Canada. The test must be supervised by a suitable official who satisfies the requirements outlined by EQAO.

The fee for writing the OSSLT test at TES Office is $299. The fee for writing the test at an alternative location is $499 ( 3+ students).
