titleSpecial examination arrangements (including the General Achievement Test (GAT))

Eligible students may apply to the VCAA for special arrangements for their exams. In the case of Year 12 exams, applications must be supported by recent independent professional advice (medical, psychological and/or educational test results). This could mean, for example, extra reading and/or writing time, rest breaks or the use of a computer in exams. Applications must be made through the Year 12 coordinator. If this applies to you, speak to Debra Icely as soon as possible.  Applications are due in to VCAA early March. Emergency Arrangments can be made immediately prior to exams if necessary.

titleExaminations - applying for a Derived Examination Score (DES)

If you have become ill or experienced a traumatic event in the two weeks leading up to examinations or during the examination period, you may apply to have your examination result determined by the VCAA. This applies to all examinations - written, oral and performance.

  • You must apply through your coordinator. The principal will determine whether you are eligible and make a recommendation to the VCAA.
  • Your application must be substantiated with evidence from an independent professional (e.g. doctor, social worker, police officer or solicitor). This must be made immediately prior to or on the day of the exam.
  • The VCAA will make the final decision on your application.
