End of Course Tests

South Carolina requires End of Course tests, counting as the final exam, in particular subjects. The first semester End of Course test schedule for Northwestern is as follows:

  • English I Writing – December 10
  • Intermediate Algebra and Algebra I – December 13
  • Biology I and Biology I Honors – December 14
  • English I Reading – December 18


Please make every effort to have your student at school and on timeavoiding making appointments during school hours on these dates.  Students must finish a test they have started before they can leave school, no matter the reason.  Hence, it is very important that they attend school without interruption on their exam day(s).


Additionally, because this test is operated under state guidelines, students may not be in possession of any electronic devices that can be used for communicating, timing, creating images, or storing images. These devices will be collected by the Test Administrator and returned after testing is complete.
