For the health and well-being of all participants, don't bring children who are unwell to testing. The following may be considered reasons to request an alternate testing date or time.
Illness or misadventure leading up to the test
If your child becomes ill or experiences a misadventure that will make them unable to sit the test on their scheduled date, call us before the test on 9264 4307. We will discuss with you the possibility of another testing date.
We will consider illness and misadventure requests for another testing date on a case-by-case basis. We will ask you for supporting evidence.
Illness or misadventure on the morning of the test
If your child is sick or otherwise unavoidably unable to attend on the day of testing, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of the original testing date to request an alternative date where possible. We will ask you for supporting evidence, such as a medical certificate (or appropriate alternative) for the testing date.
You may need to take your child to a different venue due to the short timeframe and limited venues.
Pre-booked holidays or state-level sporting commitments
We may consider a request to reschedule your child's test for:
- holidays that were booked before lodging the application
- state-level sporting commitments.
We will ask you to provide supporting evidence.
A reschedule for a state-level sporting commitment is limited to one change of date per child, regardless of any potential conflict with additional similar commitments.
All reschedules are at our discretion and will be limited due to the scale of the testing and the limited testing timeframe.
You will need to plan in advance. Reschedules are not available for:
- work conflicts
- school camps, excursions and activities
- non-state-level sporting events
- participation in entertainment
- personal preference
- anything voluntary or avoidable.
For more information on reschedules, read the Applicant guidelines.
