The school will not be able to specify particular day/s for the practical examinations to be held for any of its students. Students from a school must be randomly allocated to examination times throughout all of the days allotted for a course. This process ensures anonymity for all candidates.

Schools are advised to plan activities such as school examinations, final-day assembly, graduation, valedictory dinners and leavers’ breakfast on dates other than those listed above. These activities should be scheduled when there are no examinations for local students, such as between Monday, 1 October and Friday, 12 October.

Schools are requested to communicate the written and practical examination dates to students, teachers and parents. No allowance in the timetable can be made for holidays, work or personal arrangements.

The written ATAR course examination dates for future years will be:

2019                   Monday, 28 October – Friday, 15 November

2020                   Monday, 2 November – Friday, 20 November
