Higher School Certificate Examinations
Dear Parents and Carers,
BOSTES has a program to help students with practical support in their Higher School Certificate examinations. This practical support, known as provisions, assists students to read examination questions and to write their answers. Provisions include rest breaks and extra time. The use of any provision is not written on the student’s results.
Students may need provisions for:
- a permanent condition, such as diabetes or reading difficulty
- a temporary condition, such as a broken arm, or
- an intermittent condition, such as back pain when sitting for long
To apply for provisions, the school submits an online application to BOSTES. This application tells BOSTES which provisions the student is requesting and includes recent evidence. Evidence may include medical reports, reading results, spelling results, writing samples and teacher comments.
If you think that you or your child may require support in completing the Higher School Certificate examinations, please discuss the matter with Ms Alex. Please contact her through email; firstname.lastname@example.org by the 30th November so we can begin collating the required documents.
