Achieving the SACE is based on students’ ability to show what they have learned during their studies.  For some students, this can be made difficult due to circumstances beyond their control. The SACE Board allows Special Provisions when students have an illness or impairment that affects their ability to participate in an assessment task. A student may be eligible for special provisions if they have a:

  • physical disability
  • vision or hearing impairment
  • medical condition
  • psychological illness
  • learning disability

experienced an unforeseen incident beyond their control that prevents them from completing an assessment task or examination. This may include, for example an accident, a family death, or an interruption during an examination.
