SGHS Evidence Setting Exams, 22 – 29 September 2021
Students sitting NCEA examinations will have Evidence Exams from Wednesday 22 September until Wednesday 29 September. Year 11, 12 and 13 students will have study leave during this time. It is imperative that your child sits these evidence examinations. Morning Exams will begin at 8:50 am, afternoon exams will begin at 1:00 pm and may run through until 4:00 pm.
If a student is absent for an exam (due to illness, bereavement or other extenuating circumstances) they MUST arrange with their teacher to catch this up upon their return or they will be awarded a Not Achieved.
Students who are away during exams for unjustified reasons, e.g. family holidays, will receive a Not Achieved as their grade.
This means if your child is sick or has exceptional circumstances in the November examinations and is unable to sit the NCEA examinations and a Derived grade needs to be applied for, she will be awarded a Not Achieved, as this grade must be based on evidence that has been gathered under similar conditions to the external examinations.
Students who have very few external exams may continue to work on their course work during this time at school or home.
