Please click on the following link to see the Senior Derived Grade Exam Timetable 2020
All students in Year 11—13 will be involved in either subject workshops or tutorials and/or derived grade practice exams between Monday 7th Sept – Friday 11th September.
Timetable and information
The timetable and student exam instructions will be shared with students this week through their subject Google classrooms and are also available online. You can find them via the school website and Facebook page.
- Students need to see their subject teacher first if they have a clash on their timetable. The subject teacher will pass this information to the Head of Faculty, who will pass onto Mr Manuel.
- Students need to be at school 30mins before the starting time of their exam on the days when they have an exam, workshop or tutorial.
- All exam workshop or tutorial venues are clearly indicated on the timetable. Students with exams in the hall should assemble in the canteen courtyard. Digital exams will take place in L4, L5 or L7 as shown on the timetable. Students should assemble outside these rooms. All other workshops and tutorials, students should go directly to those rooms.
- Teachers have been preparing students for these examinations over the past weeks. These examinations are an important opportunity for students to familiarise themselves with the demands of the NCEA exams. They also provide a derived grade result in the event where a student is unable to attend their final exams at the end of the year due to suffering either just before or during the examinations a temporary illness or injury, trauma or misfortune, or a serious event beyond their control.
- All students are expected to be in school uniform for both exams and workshop/tutorials.
Special Assessment Conditions
Special Assessment Conditions for students that have been registered will have those conditions organised through our SAC key contact and SENCO, Mrs duPreez. The organisation is a huge task and most people are volunteers giving up their own time to provide the support for our SAC students. SAC students are asked to ensure they communicate any issue that might occur as soon as possible, so that Mrs duPreez can plan accordingly. If students no longer require support, they must inform Mrs duPreez.
If your child is unwell on the day, please contact the school as normal. Opportunities to sit exams in class the following week is at the discretion of Heads of Faculty.
