The Manitoba government is bringing back provincewide Grade 12 tests in English and math in the 2023/24 school year.

The tests were suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic -- a time during which the government announced plans for less-formal assessments of student achievement in Grade 10.

Education Minister Wayne Ewasko says the school system will soon have both.

He says reviving the final exams will be a good way to gauge whether the assessments in the earlier grade are working and if students are improving.
