Clemes Information 03.11.2017

End of Year Exam Arrangements
All TCE students should now have a copy of the TCE Guide to the Exams. This Guide contains all necessary instructions for students in relation to the exams and it should be read carefully. It is particularly important for students to be familiar with what can and cannot be taken into exams, for example, TASC are explicit in relation to types of calculators, drink bottle and pencil case specifications. We wish to stress that we are not the organisers of the external exams. The Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (TASC) is the organising body and is responsible for the conduct and supervision of the exams. A reminder to students to bring pink enrolment slips to all exams.
Students should assemble in the Mark Curtis Foyer NO LATER than 8.45am for morning exams and 1.15pm for afternoon exams. Latecomers will not be allowed extra time. If your child is unable to take an exam because of sickness, parents should ring the School as early as possible. A special medical certificate must be completed by a doctor, signed and dated on the day of the missed exam and forwarded to TASC as soon as possible. These certificates are contained in the student guide to the exams.
Students receiving special consideration have been emailed details about their individual arrangements.
Students can wear appropriate plain clothes during the exam period.

The Clemes Library
The library will be open during normal School hours throughout the exam period. It is strictly a place for silent study.

Student Assistance During the Exam Period
A reminder to students that it is advisable to make appointments with subject teachers in order to avoid clashes with other timetabled commitments.

Special arrangements for Year 11 IB students
A reminder to year 11 IB students of the special program designed for the remainder of this year.

YourTutor (now renamed Studiosity)
YourTutor/Studiosity is a homework, revision and general study support service offered by the School. All Clemes and High School students can access this service using their school email address and password, following activation of their account. The link can be accessed on the SEQTA ‘homepage’.
With Clemes exams so close, YourTutor offers students revision support across all subjects and levels when away from their teachers, including an asynchronous essay advice option.

Students are to meet at 10.00am in the Textile room at High School where they will make boomerang bags and then post them in the letter boxes of the residences close to The Friends’ School. In the afternoon students will be based at Clemes in Meredith where they will be assembling birthing kits.
