How to enter students

Examination schedules for the year are set in January, and these are sent out to teachers early in the year.

Entry money as well as the entry form/s  need to reach the local secretary for your area before, or by the closing date as set out in the schedule.  Payment can be made by cheque or by direct credit.  It is the teacher’s responsibility to enter the students and to ensure that payment is made prior to closing date.

If parents would like to pay by direct credit, teachers need to obtain the correct bank account number from their local secretary: Parents must use the following references when paying by Direct Credit.

Child’s surname, teacher’s surname, grade

When entering your students please ensure that you put in any special day or time requests at the time of entering.  We always try and accommodate these requests, however, it is always easier to accommodate these requests prior to the timetable being set.

You should receive notifications of when your students have been timetabled three weeks prior to examinations commencing.

Your students’ reports will either be delivered or posted to you soon after they have been examined.

For successful students who have completed their grade  a certificate will follow.
