Media is one of the first SACE Board subjects to go totally online. Online submission of external assessed materials starts on 11 September, and school assessed materials starts on 3 November.
We encourage you to practice in our sandpit now so when 11 September arrives you can say "I've got this".

Need more information? Read our sandpit guide [PDF 92KB] and FAQs and watch our instructional videos.

Thank you for leading the way in the SACE modernisation.
