The Chief Supervisor in each room will make important announcements at the commencement and conclusion of the exam. Chief Supervisors read the announcements from a printed script, as it is important that all students in all venues are provided with the same information.

The script includes information about reading time, writing during reading time, permitted materials, completing personal information on booklets and concluding the exam.

Students sitting under alternative examination arrangements and students sitting off campus are provided with a written copy of the announcements at the commencement of their exam.

Students who arrive late to an examination room are given a ‘Missed Announcements’ form which is a written copy of the announcement. They sign the form to acknowledge that they have read and understood the instructions.
