Disability Provisions

Adjustments in the HSC are practical arrangements designed to help students who couldn't otherwise make a fair attempt to show what they know in an exam room.

The adjustments granted are solely determined by how the student’s exam performance is affected. Provisions may include braille papers, large-print papers, use of a reader and/or writer, extra time or rest breaks.

Our Head Teacher Teaching and Learning and our Student Learning Support Officers will liaise with NESA to organise provisions that are suitable for them for the Higher School Certificate (HSC). They will need to apply for these provisions via an online application, which may include evidence such as medical reports, writing samples and teacher comments.

You can find out more about HSC disability provisions on the NESA website.

A range of forms are available below to assist the application process.
