Higher School Certificate examinations: assistance from teaching staff

ACE 9014

Last Updated: 20 October 2011

Principals need to arrange for a Music teacher to assist the presiding officer in the administration of the aural component of the examination in Music. This is the only case where a member of the school staff may be involved in the conduct of the examination.

Only Board-approved calculators (or, for General Mathematics, calculators that satisfy Board criteria) may be taken into the examination room. A list of Board-approved calculators and the Board criteria for calculator use in General Mathematics are published on the Board's website.

Principals need to make arrangements for appropriate teaching staff to assist in checking calculators before the students are allowed into the examination room.
