Record of School Achievement – transfers during Stage 5 from a government school, an accredited non-government school or a recognised school outside NSW – procedures

ACE 4031

Last Updated: 9 August 2012

When a student transfers during Stage 5 from a government school, an accredited non-government school or a recognised school outside NSW, that school must provide a grade to the new school for any 100 hours of study satisfactorily completed in any Board Developed or Board Endorsed Course (whether 100 or 200 hours in duration). In VET courses, competency outcomes must be updated.

In the case of English, Mathematics, Science, PDHPE and any mandatory course in the HSIE key learning area, the principal may deem that the equivalent of the first 100 hours in each of these courses has been completed before enrolment in the new school. The student should then continue study of these courses throughout Stage 5.

Students are eligible for credentialling of any 100-hour courses satisfactorily completed at the new school.

For continuing or new courses, the grades awarded to students who transfer are the responsibility of the new school unless the student’s arrival is after the end of Term 2, Year 10. In such cases, the previous school is responsible for submitting grades.

If a student is unable to meet all mandatory requirements over Years 7–10 because of a change of school, the principal may deem that they have been met.
