Electronic exams for students

If you're studying English Literary Studies, Modern History, or Psychology this year, you'll be taking an electronic exam in November.

If you're new to electronic exams, rest assured that your school, teachers, and the SACE Board are here to support you during your preparation and on exam day.

It’s important to remember that the best preparation for an electronic exam is in the subject learning. The electronic format is just an alternative way for you to demonstrate your knowledge and capabilities. Last year, students overwhelmingly told us they welcomed the new electronic format because it was in keeping with how they use technology throughout their schooling and their lives. 

The SACE Board is working in partnership with your school to ensure that your school is ready to deliver electronic examinations.

A range of activities are now available for you to familiarise yourself with the look and feel of the electronic examination. 

In addition to familiarisation activities, we’ve developed some subject specific resources to further support your preparations.

Speak to your teacher or SACE coordinator if you have questions about electronic examinations.

If you have a disability, or have been affected by misadventure or personal circumstances beyond your control, you may be eligible for special provisions.
