Year 12 WACE Examinations

All students who have enrolled to sit WACE examinations have received a personalised timetable which is to be taken to every written examination as proof of identity. I have suggested that this document remain in the student's blazer pocket as blazers must be worn to all examinations - parents can assist with a gentle reminder before leaving home for each examination. If this document is misplaced students need to go to student services 30 minutes prior to the examination to get a replacement copy.

Sickness/Misadventure Application Form

WACE Examinations: 2014

Before completing a Sickness/Misadventure Application form please read the following information carefully:

  • Has your performance in a WACE examination been affected by a temporary sickness, non-permanent disability or unforeseen misadventure suffered immediately before or during the examination period? (For Physical Education Studies and Dance practical candidates this includes a severe injury sustained after the start of Winter Term, but still existing during the practical examinations.)
  • Were you prevented from attending an examination due to sickness and/or misadventure?
  • If you answered YES to either, or both, of these questions then you should complete this form. The circumstances must have been beyond your usual control. A claim cannot be made for courses entered as a private candidate.

If your difficulties in sitting the WACE examination are the result of any of the reasons listed below, then your circumstances fall outside the Authority's policy and guidelines for sickness/misadventure.

  • Difficulties in preparation or loss of preparation time - for example, as a result of sickness during Year 12 unless in the two weeks prior to your first written examination
  • Alleged deficiencies in tuition
  • Long-term illness such as asthma and epilepsy - unless you have suffered an acute episode of your illness during the examination period
  • The same grounds for which you received special examination provision - unless you experienced additional difficulties during an examination session
  • Misreading the examination timetable
  • Misreading examination instructions
  • Events related to your school assessment in a course
  • Attendance at a sporting or cultural event during a written examination.

Refer to the on-line Year 12 Information Handbook 2014 for further details.

If the application is accepted then the procedure is for the Authority to calculate an examination mark using your school assessment as a basis. The higher of the actual examination mark and the calculated examination mark becomes the examination mark that is given to you for that examination.

Completion of the form:

Section A: Applicant details: All parts of this section must be completed by the candidate.

Section B: Course details: This section, including the insert, to be completed by the candidate personally.

Section C: Misadventure evidence (non-medical): This section should be completed by a person not related to the candidate, who is a witness to the misadventure, eg, attending police officer.

Section D: Medical evidence: This section must be completed by the medical practitioner or registered health professional, if the application is on medical or psychological grounds.

Section E: Sickness categories: An essential reference for the medical practitioner/health professional.

Acknowledgement: You must complete the name and address section. The Authority will return the acknowledgement, signed and dated, upon receipt of the application. You should retain the returned acknowledgement as proof that your application has been received. The completed form and any supporting documentation must be received by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority, PO Box 816 Cannington 6987, no later than 4.00pm on Tuesday 25 November 2014. Applications related to only the practical examination can be submitted immediately following that examination.
