TASC has confirmed that all 2020 external assessment adjustments for 2020 (only) are now available on the TASC website. This includes English 3, Maths and Science courses which have not previously been published. Sample questions for Science and Maths courses and advice about when these will be available will be provided by Friday 19 June.
Details of 2020 external assessment can be found on the TASC website at https://www.tasc.tas.gov.au/students/courses/
To locate specific course advice, find the individual course and locate the drop-down section within the course information – Supporting documents including external assessment material. The 2020 external assessment advice is named 2020 External Assessment Specifications.
2020 Folio External Assessment Dates have also been republished. The due date for some courses has been pushed back later to support student wellbeing.
Consideration has been given to a range of options that demonstrate a student’s learning, noting that exams can be stressful and that student wellbeing is at the forefront of any adjustments to external assessment. Students who are eligible can be confident they will receive an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) which, as always, will be comparable with other Year 12 students across the country.
