The school s policy statement completely fulfils Board of Studies requirements for the Preliminary Certificate. The Assessment Policy rules will be strictly enforced. School HSC Assessment Policy Clarification A few provisions of the Assessment Policy statement cause students particular difficulties. Some clarifications follow: Documentation must be available to substantiate a valid explanation for absence/late submission of an Assessment Task. It should be presented on the day you return to school to your teacher or Head Teacher. If the reason given is illness, a medical certificate is essential. In the case of late submission of a Task: - if the task was to be completed at home, it must be submitted on the day you return to school - if the task was to be completed at school, you must be prepared to sit for the task on the day you return to school. Suitable documentation must be provided in each case. Computer/printer malfunction is not an acceptable reason for late submission of a task. You should always keep a back up copy of your disk and hard copies of the draft copies of your task and write it out long hand if necessary. You must attend all lessons on the day a task is due.
