Got the email i passed! now just have to wait for interview stage.
Not worried about that, already had a interview last year. Was in ctp from january to march but didnt make it all the way through.
Three others with me who didn't make it applied again but didn't even get a invite to write the exam.
I feel lucky getting the invite.

I tried to search for an answer to this question but turned up nothing. You are required to bring proof of successful completion of secondary studies. I've misplaced my diploma and my school board will not issue another, the only thing they gave me was a copy of my transcript. Would this be enough?

Thanks

I had this issue when I submitted stuff for a background check of OPS, they told me since my transcripts said one was issued, they would accept it.

Best I can tell you.

Some schools provide official statements for verificaton of graduation.
They would have your name, the years you attended, year of graduation, and mention of any other certificates/distinctions you may have graduated with. The statements are usually done on official letterhead with the school's seal on it.
Maybe see if your school provides that service?

Thanks so much for the help! They emailed me a pdf of my transcript but I am going to also ask them to mail me an original with seal in case. And I will spend this weekend searching for my actual diploma! lol

Not bad. I was a lot more relaxed this time around. Hopefully I did ok. Of course afterwards I am always thinking I should have said more KWIM? But what's done is done and now I wait for a reply back-3-4wks.
