HSC examinations: breaches of procedures

ACE 9024

Last Updated: 15 September 2015

Students who do not comply with the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards NSW (BOSTES) examination rules for a course may have their examination paper for that course cancelled. This may render the student ineligible for the award of a Record of Achievement and/or a Higher School Certificate.

Principals should note the detailed requirements concerning students’ conduct contained in the Rules and Procedures for Higher School Certificate Candidates.

All students attending an examination session at a school are subject to the rules of the school. They are under the principal’s direction except when assembling for, undertaking and leaving the examinations. During these times the presiding officer is responsible for supervising the students.
