Resubmitting for SACE completion (results due December)
Following the end-of-year results release, students who have met all the requirements of the SACE except satisfactory achievement of the Research Project will have an additional opportunity to resubmit one or more assessment types.
This additional opportunity only applies to students:
- who were enrolled in Research Project (results due December) in Semester 2
- for whom results were submitted for one or more assessment types for Research Project (results due December)
- who have met all other SACE requirements
Students who meet these criteria may resubmit one or more assessment types between the date of results release in December and the end of January in the following year, for resulting at the end of the clerical check period in February.
Schools with students who did not complete their SACE by not reaching the C– standard in Stage 2 Research Project (results due December) only will be contacted by the SACE Board on the day of results release.
The SACE Board will invite school leaders to contact identified students to ascertain their willingness to complete extra work and resubmit the Folio, the Research Outcome, and/or the Evaluation/Review in order to complete the SACE.
The SACE Board will provide the school with an exceptional circumstances form. The principal or the principal’s delegate should submit the form to the SACE Board early in January the following year, with details of the student(s), the corresponding assessment type(s) to be resubmitted, and the anticipated submission date.
All resubmitted assessments, with results from the school, must be submitted to the SACE Board by late January the following year. When at least a C– grade is achieved through resubmitting one or more assessment types, the result is reported on the student’s Record of Achievement as ‘granted’.
