Higher School Certificate examinations: establishment of examination centres

ACE 9009

Last Updated: 1 April 2019

Examination centres are established by NESA at schools on the basis of the number of students, the accommodation available, and the proximity of other schools.

Students from other schools and self-tuition candidates may be placed at an examination centre if there is enough space.

Before the start of the Higher School Certificate examination, NESA provides the principal with the details of any extra student(s) allocated.
