QC delays exit exams as Common Front prepares for week-long strike


The Government of Québec will reschedule the uniform language tests that cégep students are required to pass in order to graduate. Tests will be delayed by a week in case the seven-day strike planned by the Common Front–which represents groups such as public cégep teachers–moves forward; the strike is planned for December 8 to 14. Montreal Gazette reports that the possibility of this strike poses a problem for not just these exit exams, but also other cégep-specific tests planned for December. As a result, cégep leadership is considering extending terms into January or applying to QC for a shorter-term calendar.
