What to do if you are sick or have an emergency on the day of your exam:

  • If you can’t attend your exam because you are sick: tell your school, arrange a medical appointment and complete the TASC Senior Secondary External Assessment Medical Certificate.
  • If you have an emergency (or can’t attend for another reason): tell your school and write to TASC explaining why.

Students with cold or flu-like symptoms or who are in isolation awaiting a COVID-19 test result must not to attend exams. (If you have hay fever, please follow the Public Health advice to get medical clearance to attend).
