In Saskatchewan, the full CAEC exam (5 sub-exams) costs $35.00, which is $7.00 per individual sub-exam. These fees were for theGED exam, and we assume that the CAEC fees are the same.

The Saskatchewan minimum age to qualify for CAEC testing is 18, but applicants 17 years old may also sit for the exam if they have officially withdrawn from their high school, have completed an age waiver, and meet more requirements.

Please check with your regional CAEC test center or CAEC administrator if you are underage and want to take the CAEC test.

Please bear in mind that the CAEC test is a challenging assessment and that you really should get well-prepared, for example, by taking part in Canadian online CAEC classes like the course developed by Onsego.

Residency requirement

In Saskatchewan, residency is required. Before you are allowed to take the exam at a testing center, you must be able to prove your residency with a current and valid photo ID that includes your Saskatchewan address.

If the testing center closest to you is in a different territory or province, you may be able to take the test there, but regulations vary. Some provinces and territories allow residents from other provinces to write the CAEC exam there, while others don’t. So please check with the test center first.

Saskatchewan does not require CAEC applicants to first sign up for a CAEC class or get instruction at a local prep facility before they can sit for the exam, and Saskatchewan also doesn’t test-takers to first reach sufficient results on the official CAEC practice test before they qualify for the exam.

Computer and paper tests

Saskatchewan CAEC testing centers offer the exam in both paper and computer-based versions. You may also switch between the paper and computer-based formats and combine them.

For example, if you took some GED sections before the pandemic on paper and now want to complete the remaining parts on a computer, your marks can be combined. GED scores remain valid up to May 2027.

Take CAEC practice tests – that’s the best way

If you want to get all set for the 5 sub-exams of the Canadian CAEC test, the best way to go is to take multiple practice tests. You will learn all about your stronger and weaker points so that you can center on those subject fields that require most of your study ti,e.

Additionally, you’ll get used to taking tests under time pressure, which is important if you want to be successful on the five timed CAEC sub-exams. You’ll also have the chance to create and develop your best test-taking strategies. All these skills will not only help you attain better scores on the CAEC exam, but they will also prove very beneficial when you later want to attend college, enter the workforce, or boost your career.

When you take a CAEC practice test and miss a number of correct answers, check out Onsego’s online CAEC prep classes and practice tests once more to improve your skills and knowledge and boost your score.

Similar to the tests you had in high school, the five CAEC sub-exams are timed tests, so you’ll have to develop your pacing skills. The most efficient way to boost your academic readiness and deal with time pressure is to take multiple timed CAEC practice tests modeled in the same way as the real test. And that’s exactly what Onsego’s timed practice tests do!
