Students are to sit an exam on the set date as informed by the assessment calendar or the examination timetable.
If a student is unable to sit an exam due to illness:
- Parents/Caregivers must make immediate contact with the Deputy Principal or Head of Department to advise of the situation and to negotiate a new date to sit the exam.
- Students must also provide a medical certificate or a parental note on the day of their return, clearly outlining why they could not sit for the exam on the set date.
- If a student is unable to sit an exam due other extenuating circumstances (eg family bereavement), they will need to access the Special Provisions Process. Parents will need to contact the Guidance Officer.
Situations involving cheating are defined as students bringing in prepared or prohibited materials into an examination room or accessing material from any source (mobile phone, another student, etc) during an exam.
In the event that a student is caught cheating in an exam:
- The student’s exam will be stopped when cheating is evident and work completed up to that point on the exam will be signed off and not marked.
- Student will be allowed to continue to complete exam. What is completed from that point on will be marked. Students may be required to sit a similar examination.
- Student will be sent to Deputy Principal or relevant Head of Department. Parents will be contacted.
