Electronic exams for parents and community

The SACE Board of South Australia introduced electronic examinations for the first time in 2018 as part of the ongoing modernisation of the SACE. Stage 2 English Literary Studies students were the first to use it when they sat their examination on 7 November 2018.

Students of the following subjects will take an electronic exam in 2020:

  • Biology
  • English Literary Studies
  • Geography
  • Indonesian (continuers)
  • Legal Studies
  • Modern History
  • Nutrition
  • Psychology
  • Tourism

Moving to electronic examinations better reflects how today's students are learning in schools, further education, and the workplace.

The electronic examination has been designed so the reference material and questions are presented simply. The look, feel, and features (like scrolling and navigation) are designed to be familiar to students from using the internet every day.

Teachers will support students’ preparation for an electronic examination. The best preparation for an examination presented either electronically is engagement in subject learning.
