Winter 2019 intake
Are you missing a grade 12 English requirement?
If you are ineligible for a program because you are missing an English requirement, the English Equivalency Assessment may be for you. Although achieving a passing grade on this assessment will not provide you with an English credit, it can help you gain admission to an open program at Fanshawe College. We offer English Equivalency Assessments for the following high school course:
- 12C College Preparation English (ENG4C).
You will write an essay in response to a short reading (called a prompt). The essay will be handwritten. You will have 50 minutes to read the prompt and write the essay. Please do your best work. Follow the instructions carefully.
