Applications are now available for any ATAR students who need special exam arrangements for the end of year external WACE exams. Applications must be received by SCSA by Thursday, 4 April 2019. A link to the application form is below and hard copies are available from the school. Please make contact with Mr Murphy if you intend to make an application or if you are unsure if this applies to your child.
Please see below for information provided by SCSA as to what is catered for under special exam arrangements:
Students who have a permanent or temporary disability, illness and/or specific learning disability that could disadvantage them in demonstrating their knowledge, skills and understandings in standard assessments may have their school apply to the School Curriculum and Standards Authority to sit ATAR course examinations under special arrangements. Applications can be made for the written and/or practical examinations. Application forms must be completed by the school, with supporting information supplied by external consultants where relevant. The granting of special examination arrangements is not automatic, but takes into account medical and/or psychometric evidence plus supporting school-based information related to the student’s ability to access the examination. The role of special examination arrangements is to provide reasonable access to an examination.
