WACE Update from SCSA – Year 12 Students

Year 12 Student Declaration and Permission Online Completion

As part of their final year of schooling, all Year 12 students and other students enrolled in ATAR course examinations need to be aware of the requirements to achieve the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) and for sitting ATAR course examinations. The requirements are listed in the Year 12 Information Handbook, which is available on the Authority website athttps://www.scsa.wa.edu.au/publications/year-12-information.

Student Declaration

Students are required to declare that they have read and understood the rules and procedures governing the ATAR course examinations, and that they are aware that their marks will be provided to the Tertiary Institutions Service Centre (TISC).

Student Permission

The purpose of the online student permission section is to enable students to give their permission for the release of certain personal information and the use of their written and practical examination responses and school assessments in resources produced by the Authority. Also provided is the explanatory information about the three responses and the terms on which the student materials will be utilised.

Before a student completes the Student Declaration and Permission online

Students must (if under 18 years of age) have discussed their responses with their parents/guardians before submitting them online. The online procedure has been developed so that you cannot complete the form unless you click ‘Yes’ to ‘I have discussed my responses to the above questions with my parents/guardians.’

Please note: Students will be required to complete the Student Declaration and Permission when they log in to the Student portal before they can gain access to other important information, such as their course enrolments, examination timetable/s and results.

Completing the Student Declaration and Permission online

To complete the Student Declaration and Permission online, the student will need to visit the Student portal on the Authority’s websitehttps://student.scsa.wa.edu.au/student-portal. Students can complete this at home, and will also be given the opportunity during school to complete this with Ms Roberts, Mr Mungioli or Mrs Nurse. Students require their 8-digit Student Number; this can be located on the front page of any of your high school reports, or by visiting Mrs Nurse in the front office before school, or during Lunch 1 or Lunch 2. Additional parent information and how to complete the declaration is attached. Please do not hesitate to make contact should you have any questions or need information clarified.
