Exam Information, Results and Performance Tables

Extra time is built into assessments; Word processors are provided in-class or separate rooms; readers and prompts are provided by the class teacher or students have chosen to use a reading pen; students who require scribes are supported.

Any Exam Access unable to be covered has been noted, and marks adjusted accordingly.
