Year 12 WACE Examinations

Sickness/Misadventure Application

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 2015 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.

See Mr Frusher at Scotch for Sickness/Misadventure forms and any additional information required.
