Event date: June 5, 2017 - All Day
As the end of the semester approaches, so does the examination period for students in Years 9. Every Year 9 student will be required to sit an examination in each of their core subjects only.
The purpose of examinations at Year 9 is to:
- Provide students with a range of experiences in order to reduce tension that typically occurs in Year 11 and 12 when students undertake their VCE.
- Develop skills in preparing for and completing tasks given a time constraint. Such skills should also assist students to improve their performance in things such as job interviews.
- To de-mystify the examination experience and ultimately improve performance in tests and examinations.
The examinations at Year 9 will occur during a double period according to the timetable indicated below:
|Monday 5th June||Tuesday 6th June|
|Period 1 & 2||English Exam||Mathematics Exam|
|Period 3 & 4||Science Exam||Humanities Exam|
|Period 5||Supervised Private Study in Exam Room||Completion of DET required survey|
Note: Examinations are compulsory for all students. A medical certificate should be supplied if a student is ill. Students who are absent from an examination will still be required to complete the examination and this is likely to occur after school.
Normal classes for Year 9 students will only be disrupted on Monday 5th June and Tuesday 6th June.
If a student misbehaves during the examination, they will be removed from the exam, and required to re-sit the examination at a time to be arranged after school.
Should you have any queries regarding the examination at Year 9, please feel free to contact the college. I also encourage you to discuss any concerns that you may have regarding your son / daughter’s progress with his / her Year Level Co-ordinator.
