The ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies has made the decision to postpone the Territory’s AST exams.

The final year College exams were scheduled to take place on Tuesday 31 August and Wednesday 1 September 2021.

They will now take place on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 October 2021 instead.

Board Chair, Roberta McRae said the decision was made due to the current public health orders

“The Board acknowledges that this can be a stressful time for students and families.”

“The Board is committed to the health and well-being of students and to processes that support the validity of academic results.”

However, the Board also acknowledged the rescheduled dates will also be subject to public health orders at the time.
