Disability provisions in the HSC are practical arrangements designed to help students who can’t otherwise make a fair attempt to show what they know in an exam. The provisions granted are solely determined by how the student’s exam performance is affected. More than 7000 HSC students apply for provisions each year. Provisions help students to show the HSC markers what they know and can do. These needs may be related to learning, sensory impairment, mental health, medical or physical conditions.
Examples of provisions available include:
Schools are responsible for determining and approving disability provisions for all school-based assessment tasks. NESA determines disability provisions for the HSC examinations. Students and parents should be advised that there is no guarantee that NESA will grant the same provisions as those provided at school.
To apply for provisions, schools must submit an online application to NESA. This application tells us which provision/s a student is requesting and includes recent evidence. Evidence may include medical reports, reading results, spelling results, writing samples and teacher comments.
Disability provisions also apply to temporary and emergency-related disabilities e.g. if a student breaks their writing arm a week before an examination.
If you feel your daughter may require exam provisions please contact Simmy Cesamolo, Head of Diverse Learning, via email or by phone 9473 7368 to discuss the process of application. The closing date for disability provisions applications for known/stable conditions for the 2022 HSC is before the end of Term 1.
Please find all details about Disability Provisions Applications on the NESA website.

Our Year 8 Religion students have been learning about the story of our foundress, Mary Ward. When Mary Ward was imprisoned and her Institute suppressed in 1631 for its progressive approach to religious life and social justice, she wrote letters to her companions in lemon juice. Year 8 have put their learning into practice by writing lemon juice letters to Mary Ward!
