Secondary School Equivalency Test (SSET)


If you do not have a Secondary School Diploma (SSD)., the ministers de l'Éducation offers you  an evaluation instrument that will allow you to demonstrate the skills, knowledge, competencies and abilities you have acquired.


If you pass the SSET, you will receive an Attestation of Equivalence of Secondary Studies (AESS).


For those who do not have a Secondary School Diploma (SSD), the SSET provides a

unique opportunity to obtain an  Attestation of Equivalence of Secondary Studies (AESS) from le ministère de l'Éducation


The AESS can help you gain access to many jobs that require a Secondary School Diploma

or its equivalent.


Furthermore, it currently qualifies you for admission into vocational education studies

and some CEGEP attestation programs.


An AESS may also be obtained for personal satisfaction. If you have not completed

your secondary studies, it may be rewarding to receive confirmation that you have

acquired the equivalent skills on your own. The AESS may also be useful in

various unforeseen circumstances.
