Term 2 TCE Exams
Term 2 exams are on Monday 15 May and Tuesday 16 May.
Not all pre-tertiary subjects will have an exam. Subject teachers will let students know if there is an exam for their subject. All classes, however, will have a two hour block, whether it be an exam, excursion or class time.

TQA Disability Provisions
The Office of Tasmanian Assessment Standards and Certification (TASC) allows special consideration to candidates who are unable to be assessed in the same way as other students.
Consideration may include allowances such as additional time, spelling consideration, special seating, etc. To gain this, students need to provide evidence to support their claim and it is preferable this is done early in the year. If you feel your child may be eligible for some form of special consideration please ask them to see Adam Chambers.

Study Planners
Study planners for the term break are available from the Clemes Office. Students are encouraged to give some thought to consolidation of notes, backing up computers and writing summaries over the holiday period. They are also reminded that past exam papers are available from the Library or TASC websites.
