Disability provisions program

ACE 10002

Last Updated: 1 April 2019

Disability provisions are approved by NESA to provide students who have a permanent or temporary disability with practical support in the Higher School Certificate examinations.

Regardless of the nature of the disability, the provisions granted will be solely determined by the implications for the student’s functioning in an examination situation.

Provisions may include Braille papers, large print papers, use of a writer, use of a reader, extension of examination time, rest breaks, small group supervision, individual supervision, permission to take medication, or other provisions as judged appropriate.
