  • If you enrol in the year preceding the start of your academic year, you must contact the College for a timetable that is applicable to the year in which you will be doing your assessments.
  • All School Based Assessment (SBA) tasks have to be completed and submitted for marking within the timeframes prescribed by the College.
  • The SBA mark contributes 25% towards your total mark and the final examination contributes 75% towards your total mark.

Controlled Tests

  • This task comprises four sections. One section will be completed for each of the 4 terms.
  • You have to attend face-to-face contact sessions throughout the year, with a Life Orientation educator, for the evaluation of your Physical Education Task (PET).

The College will inform you if there are any changes to these dates. You must also check the College website regularly for the latest information available.
