Dear Parents & Caregivers,

There have been occasions recently where students have submitted Illness/Misadventure forms accompanied by a certificate issued by a chemist as their medical documentation.

As NESA does not accept certificates provided by chemists as evidence of illness/misadventure for HSC Examinations, it is the policy of Marian Catholic College to adhere to NESA requirements and from this date to ONLY accept a certificate from a doctor accompanying such an application.

This will apply to all assessment tasks in both Stages 5 and 6.
