Pennsylvania students will be required to pass exams in order to graduate from high school beginning with the class of 2015. Reading and math tests currently taken by the state's 11th-graders might be eliminated. Students will be required to pass at least six of 10 Keystone Exams -- or complete alternative requirements -- to earn their diplomas, and schools will be able to draft their own exams if they choose.
