TASC will only grant the following provisions to refugee students who lodge a completed application form signed by the student and the TASC Liaison Officer at the school by no later than the end of Term 3.
* A copy of the students visa MUST be supplied with the application form.
Requests received after the above deadline will not be considered under ANY circumstances.
Applicants who have had 5 or more full years of schooling in Australia will only be eligible for borderline consideration under this provision. A request for any other provisions will need to be made using the 'general special provisions form' and supported by evidence of a particular impairment or disability.
Provisions that will be granted:
Extra TimeOne hour extra time for each written examination will be granted to students who have NOT achieved a Satisfactory Achievement or better in a Level 3 or 4 TCE subject.
Extra time of 20 minutes per 2 hour examination or 30 minutes per 3 hour examination will be granted to students who have achieved a Satisfactory Achievement or better in a Level 3 or 4 TCE subject in a previous year.
Extra time will NOT been granted for the English as an Additonal Language or Dialect examination.
Borderline considerationWill automatically be granted to each student who has a valid refugee entry visa. If you do not sit your external examinations this provision will not apply.
In order for borderline consideration to apply in a particular subject, students must be only one external rating away from the next highest award. If it applies to a subject the award is upgraded to the next highest award (on that externally assessed subject). It should be noted that not all of a student's external subjects will fall into this category.
Requests for any other provisions must be submitted under the arrangements for Special Disability Provisions
