Higher School Certificate examinations: assistance from teaching staff

ACE 9014

Last Updated: 4 May 2018

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