titleSchool-assessed coursework and School -assessed tasks

School-assessed coursework (SAC) has to take place in class time. Therefore, students must attend school for their SAC sessions.

The following rules will apply if a student is absent from a SAC session:

  • If they were away and have a medical certificate they will be given an opportunity to undertake the task at another time to be negotiated between the student, teacher and VCE Coordinator.
  • If they do not have a medical certificate, they will get a zero for that SAC.
  • If a student misses part of a SAC, and has a medical certificate, consideration will be given for the time lost.
  • If a student misses part of a SAC, but does not have a medical certificate, consideration will not be given for time lost, and the work will be marked as presented.
  • If a situation of extreme illness or hardship develops, Special Provision may be applied and other arrangements made. 

SAC dates are indicated on the SAC Calendar accessed via the PHSC Homepage. Please note these dates are indicative only and may change due to unforeseen circumstances.
