Mock Exam Schedules
The 2019 Mock Exam Timetable was given to Year 12s yesterday. You can also download the schedule here.
The Year 12 mock WACE exams start on Monday 7 October. Exams run from Monday 7 October (first day of the second week of holidays) to Friday 18 October. All Year 12 students return to school on Monday 21 October. All mock exams will be held in the Senior Academic Centre unless otherwise stated. Students must observe all conditions of WACE ATAR examinations; they should bring their Smart Riders or exam timetable as proof of identity to each exam.
Students will have their WACE practical exams during the first week of the October holidays. Students will receive details of these exams from the School Curriculum and Standards Authority.
Students attend school from Monday 21 October to Wednesday 23 October when they will receive their marked exams. Year 12s will participate in the Colour Run on the morning of Thursday 24 October, on which afternoon Valedictory celebrations will take place. Students do not need to attend school after Thursday 24 October. WACE ATAR examinations commence on Monday 29 October. Students may use the School library for preparation prior to their ATAR examinations. They will, however, need to attend in correct uniform (sport uniform is acceptable), and should sign in and out at Senior School Reception.
Year 12 students will not receive a report, but will receive a statement of results. The proposed issue date of the statement of results is Friday 18 October. It is important that students check that the statement is correct before results are submitted to SCSA.
Receiving the Mock Exam Schedule yesterday may have made it quite real for some students. Our staff are working to reassure them that they can get through, and that now is the time to plan for success, rather than panic. If you have any concerns about your child, their PCG tutors will be your first port of call.
Through St Mark's SchoolTV, there are a number of articles and resources designed to support both students and parents through the exam period. Features to take a look at include:
