Disability provisions for school-based assessment tasks

Schools are responsible for determining and approving disability provisions for all school-based assessment tasks. The Board only determines disability provisions for the Higher School Certificate examinations.

Students and parents should be advised that there is no guarantee the Board will grant the same provisions as those given at school.

For more information, see sections 10.1 and 10.3 of the Assessment, Certification and Examination (ACE) Manual.
