  4. All students, including those who did not complete the original assessment for a reason acceptable under the School's policies, must be able to:
    1. access the further opportunity, if they wish; and
    2. use the further opportunity to improve their original grade.
  5. Students must be awarded the higher grade achieved over both opportunities.

    Resubmission

  6. A resubmission may be offered to a student who did not achieve the standard if the teacher judges the student has made a minor error or omission that they should be capable of discovering and correcting on their own.
  7. A resubmission must be limited to specific aspects of the assessment and no more than one resubmission must be provided per assessment opportunity.
