Block Exams – Year 11 and 12


Year 12 Block Exams: 7 – 10 November 2017


Year 11 Block Exams: 21 – 24 November 2017 

Each student receives an individual timetable matching their subjects. VET students may be asked to come in and complete work when they do not have exams and they will write these timeslots onto their exam timetables.
If your child misses an exam, they will need to provide a medical certificate as soon as possible. We also request that you have notified the school prior to the exam. You may do this either by phoning (4797 1333) or by calling into the General Office. Any other extenuating circumstances of non-attendance during Block Exams must be discussed with the Deputy Principal.
Students do not need to attend if they do not have exams on that day. A supervised study room is always available for students who need to stay for the day or who would like some quiet study time. Students cannot have peers in their cars to or from exams without the correct paperwork. Please see the General Office for the forms.

  • Year 11 and 12 students only have to attend school when they have an exam. When at school STUDENTS ARE TO BE IN FULL SCHOOL UNIFORM.

  • The Exam Blocks are divided into two sessions – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. 
  • If there isn’t a room for the exam, the default room is the Auditorium. (SA = auditorium).
