O level equivalency in Canadian Education system




If a student has completed his O levels from the British system and wishes to continue schooling / education in Canada, where does he start - Grade 11 or 12?

Any links to official websites with this info is appreciated. Thanks!

If I remember correctly, the "O" level is equivalent to Grade 10.

Here is a http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/curriculum/secondary/ to Ontario Ministry of Education Seccondary Curriculum. Ask the student to go through it and figure out where they stand.

Admission for foreign students into High School (at least in TDSB) is based on the following:
1. Results of an admission test,
2. Courses they have taken prior to coming here, and
3. Age (I'm not too sure about this one. In elementary school age is certainly a factor).

Here are some links:

Thanks SS! You are right, O'levels are equivalent to grade 10. However some people believe the amount of curriculum covered in O levels is equal to grade 11 and hence I wanted to double check.
