2017/2018 Grad Planner and Dogwood Planner

The Student Certification Branch has released the 2016/2017 BC Dogwood Planner, an annual document published for students in Grade 12. The document is to be read alongside the Grad Planner and answers the common questions students have in their graduating year. The BC Dogwood Planner contains information on provincial examinations, receiving and sending transcripts, applying to post-secondary institutions and much more. Schools are encouraged to share this document with their Grade 12 students so they can use it as a guide to navigate their graduation year, and take the next big step in their lives.
