    Not showing up to an exam?

    Yes, all absentees are removed from moderation, so there is no impact on the balance of your school course group. A mark of zero is never reported on HSC results. For a 1-unit course like SoR1, only marks of 15 and above are reported. For lower marks, they are reported as <15/50 (or <30/100 for...

    No Centre Number

    Schools and exam centres are not the same. An exam centre may include the home school, other local schools not large enough to conduct their own exams, and students studying by distance education who live nearby.

    Why can't we take the exam out of the Exam Room anymore?

    For 2014 the rule said "Examination question papers may be removed at the end of the examination only if they are not to be used as answer booklets". The 2015 rule was tightened, as stated above. Too many students were taking multiple choice answer sheets or completed answers out of the...

    Illness/Misadventure in Exams - will it be accepted?

    Obviously, you would also need a dr. to confirm that you were genuinely sick. Although a supervisor may say you looked sick, that is not a medical opinion. If you didnt see a dr. right after the exam, your appeal is prob screwed.
