  11. Ontario- HOAE results?  'Normalized' score?
    That was me that posted originally- I never did find out what the deal was with those scores. I did find out what each section of the test was worth, though, so I found what my overall percentage...

    Mohawk College emailed us our individual results, and the breakdown. I sat my HOAE in July for the January intake. Maybe Sheridan doesn't send their results...? Actually, I know someone who wrote...
