Year Twelve Newsletter

Year 12 ATAR students please note that your first semester exams commence next Monday 26th May 2014.

Good luck to all Year 12 students undertaking the forthcoming examinations over the coming two weeks. Please note these exams are important and are part of your overall school marks and grade. All of you should have your examination slip that you must take to each of your exams. This has your student name and number on it. It is your identification slip for sitting the exam. Please ensure you organise this with your stationary the night before your exam. It is your responsibility to bring this slip to the examination.

Reminders that if you have a misadventure - car accident, or are sick on the day that you are required to provide the required evidence. E.g. accident - you will need the accident report, sick - you need verification from of the nature and severity of the illness or injury from a doctor. This is a requirement of scsa. If something does occur and you are absent on the day or running late please contact Student Reception and ask for a message to be given to me ASAP.

These exams are just one part of your course so keep positive and focussed and believe in your ability to produce your best.

Below are some top tips from Top Universities to assist you in your preparation.
