Earlier this year the SACE board answered a range of questions from SACE students about the impact of COVID-19 in their You Can Ask That! video.
As we begin Term 3, we are keen to come back together (at a safe social distance!) to share some new information with students.
In their second You Can Ask That! video, SACE Board Chief Executive Professor Martin Westwell and SATAC Chief Executive Officer Stuart Mossman revisit the same questions and provide updates on the ATAR, end-of-year exams, special provisions and VET.
We know the COVID-19 coronavirus is causing a great deal of uncertainty for SACE students.
Will students complete their SACE in 2020? Will the ATAR still go ahead? What about exams? Do Special Provisions apply with COVID-19? What about university entry?
We put these questions and others collected from students in South Australia and the Northern Territory to SACE Board Chief Executive Professor Martin Westwell, and SATAC Chief Executive Officer Stuart Mossman.
Using the same format as the ABC's You Can't Ask That, watch the You Can Ask That video below to hear Martin and Stuart answer students' concerns about the impact of COVID-19 on SACE and SATAC processes. Please circulate this video with your school communities.

The devastating bushfires have taught us that we cannot take life for granted and that we live in times where circumstances can change quickly.
The great Australian dream is to own your own home on a half-acre block. In this day and age, this has changed significantly as we live in times where land close to the centre of the city is very expensive and at a premium. Medium-density housing and apartments are becoming the new wave of modern living for Australia. Affordable housing continues to be the major challenge for governments as we wish to ensure the dream continues to be possible for our children and their children...
