More than 6,000 Tasmanian Year 11 and 12 students will begin their Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) written exams this coming Monday after a year of hard work and commitment during a particularly challenging time.
Students will sit their exams or assessments at one of 26 exam centres around the State, with written exams in 42 accredited courses taking place in COVID-safe environments.
More than 6,500 Tasmanian senior secondary students will undertake the significant task of TCE external assessment in more than 50 courses including oral, practical, performance, and project assessments.
Our greatest priority for 2020 has been on ensuring Tasmanian students are not further disadvantaged by the already significant impacts of COVID-19, and that everyone’s safety, health and wellbeing is protected.
I’d like to thank schools and TASC for working together to keep exam preparations on track and ensure students can access the future study, training and work of their choice.
Because this year is a year like no other, we are supporting our Year 11 and 12 students in unprecedented ways. These measures include:
Results and qualifications achieved in 2020, released on December 17, will continue to be just as meaningful and representative of a young person’s achievement as any other year.
While this has been a tough year, I would encourage all of our senior secondary students to see it through and keep on believing in yourselves and what you are capable of.
I would like to thank all teachers and school staff, students and families for their understanding and support during this uncertain and difficult time.
