Special consideration

If you are having a hard time in your life that may affect or has affected your assessments and exams, you can apply for Special Consideration. Forms are available from your School office. Best to apply for it at least 10 days before the assessments if you have ongoing issues. If something unexpected interferes with your assessments, you can apply up to two days after the assessment. A doctor's certificate or another professional's letter helps to provide evidence. Counsellors can assist you with your application.
