Outbreak of notifiable disease

When a school or region is experiencing an outbreak of a highly infectious viral disease the safety of other students, teachers and examination staff must be ensured.

Where a student is unable to attend an examination because they have the disease, or have been in contact with someone who has and are not immune through vaccination, they can apply through their school for a derived grade. Candidates should contact their school immediately if they have the disease or been in contact with an infected person.
