If you're teaching any of the new e-exam subjects, rest assured that we are here to help with the transition. One of the biggest contributors to the success of the e-exam in the past was the partnership approach between the SACE Board and schools.
As well as regular updates to the website and social media channels, we will communicate with you directly via email and encourage you to connect with teachers at your school or local school network who have been involved in e-exams to learn from their experiences.
Together we will keep communication lines open, and work with you through the change to ensure your students have a positive experience with the e-exam format.

It’s important to remember that the best preparation for an e-exam is in the subject learning. The electronic format is just an alternative way for students to demonstrate their knowledge and capabilities. In previous years, 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.
A range of activities are available for students to familiarise themselves with the look and feel of the e-exam. See Preparing for an exam.
As with any aspect of the SACE, special provisions are available for students who are eligible.
Training opportunities will be available in the lead up to the practice window and final exams.
Invigilators for e-exams must be nominated by the principal's delegate in Schools Online to access the training.
