Hello everyoneee, an odd question I know but does anyone know if it is at all possible to receive an estimation for the preliminary exam if illness and misadventure occur around the exam time? My mental health conditions are acting up in a major way and I just need to know if it is at all possible because I know my school is less than lenient about actually helping students.

I think so. From personal experience I do remember a friend of mine getting one. However it’s year 11 so it may vary from schools. Best bet is to straight up ask your school.

Thank you so much :) I will definitely ask them, I doubt this would work if something happened during the HSC though right?

Year 12 is a lot more formal. They can definitely give estimations in year 12. Rarely they may even give you a separate paper which I’ve only seen happen once because it’s very dodgy.

The external HSC that's a different ball-game given the illness misadventure is decided by NESA, however, for internal exams at your school there will likely be something present.

When I was in Year 12, the first bunch of exams in the first term I feel sick. I did the exams but took out illness misadventure as well as that's what my school recommended. The way the estimation process works is quite strict in terms of at my school your mark later in the year for that assessment would be reassessed based on your ranks in other assessment tasks and if you scored lower in those than the exam you were sick you didn't get any adjustment. But as DrDusk said you should ask your school specifically as they will have their own policies and procedures on how they do estimates.

So it can happen in year 12? or did you mean they definitely give estimations in year 11?

By internal exams, you mean things like the trial HSC correct?

Internal exams refers to all the assessments you do throughout the year at school. So that's not only the trial exams, it also includes previous tasks
