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

  • Senior 3 level Math, Chemistry and Physics
  • Hui Kao: Chinese Upper Middle School Graduation Exam results / Academic Proficiency Test

  • Proof of English Facility may be required*

Students following the national Chinese curriculum, who are not completing 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 exam) for each prerequisite subject.

If you are following an International curriculum such as the American Curriculum (U.S, British-Patterned (A-Levels) or International Baccalaureate curriculum, please review the admission requirements for those systems.

For Fall 2021 Admissions, U of T is test optional. However, we strongly encourage students to submit any SAT, ACT or AP exams they have completed.

* Please visit English Language Requirements page 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).
