Candidates studying in the Chinese High School system are required to present:

  • Senior 3 level Math, Chemistry and Physics — if students are permitted to take only one science subject within their Gao Kao, we recommend Physics; Chemistry should be presented in Senior Year 3
  • Hui Kao: Chinese Upper Middle School Graduation Exam results (if available in your province)
  • Gao Kao: Chinese National University Entrance Examinations
  • Proof of English Facility may be required*

Students who do not plan to take the Gao Kao must provide a written explanation why they are not writing the Gao Kao and submit a standardized test result (SAT Subject Test or AP) for each prerequisite subject.

If you are completing a British-Patterned, International Baccalaureate or U.S. curriculum, please review the admission requirements for those systems.

*Please visit English Language Requirements to evaluate if you are required to present proof of English Facility. If you do not meet the English Language Requirements at the time of admission or you are worried that you test score will not meet our minimum requirements, you may want to consider applying for the International Foundation Program (IFP).

Submission of Documents

Applicants are required to submit Senior Secondary school transcripts, showing all years of study including current interim results and Hui Kao results, via the Applicant Portal’s document upload feature prior to February 1.

In addition, applicants who have studied in China are asked to have their Gao Kao and, if applicable, Final Post-Secondary transcript results verified by the CDGDC – China Qualifications Verification service or China Credentials Verification (CHESICC). When available, final results should be sent directly to the Engineering Undergraduate Admissions office at the University of Toronto from the issuing body.
