The Department of Education has now developed a revised and simplified timeline for the OC placement process to ensure that the students and families can have certainty about their placement as soon as possible.
The changes include:
A new date for online applications. Parents must apply between 9 June 2020 and 26 June 2020. Late applications cannot be accepted.
A new test date - Wednesday 16 September 2020.
To ensure fair and consistent assessment of students across NSW, students will be offered places based only on their test results this year- there will be no school assessment scores.
There will also be no opportunity for appeals given the tight timeframes.
