Each presiding officer consults with the principal on the physical set up of the centre. The principal may nominate a staff member as coordinator.

Before the first examination, attention needs to be paid to:

  1. accommodation, furniture and examination equipment
  2. students with disability provisions approval, including visiting students (see also information on the Higher School Certificate Disability Provisions Program)
  3. receipt and secure storage of examination answer booklets and other material.
