All students are required to complete assessment and
exams on the scheduled dates. If you are unable to attend a scheduled
exam or submit an assessment item on the due date, you need to communicate with
the school immediately with a valid reason to ensure that you may still have

Students are not eligible for AARA on the following grounds:
Unfamiliarity with the English language
Teacher absence or other teacher-related difficulties
Matters that the student could have avoided (e.g. misreading an examination timetable, misreading instructions in examinations)
Matters of the student's or parent's/carer's own choosing (e.g. family holidays)
Matters that the school could have avoided (e.g. incorrect enrolment in a subject)
To avoid the school being unable to approve extensions of assessment or reschedule examination times due to matters of the student's or parent's/carer's own choosing (e.g. family holidays), we encourage students to be at school for the duration of each term.
