4 November 2019 marked the official start of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET) final written examinations, which will continue in schools across the Territory for the next two weeks.
Number of individual students enrolled to sit exams in this year is 1,380. This includes final year students and some from levels other than year 12.
“As Minister for Education, I wish all students sitting their exams the very best of luck for the next two weeks and for the very exciting futures they have ahead.” Minister for Education Selena Uibo said.
“This can be a very stressful time for all involved, so I thank our teachers, families and school communities for their hard work in supporting our students in the lead-up to these exam weeks.”
First written exam to be held across the Territory is the Biology exam, scheduled for 8 am.
Students will sit exams in 38 different subjects this year, including in 13 different languages. Some language examinations have already taken place in the past two weeks.
This year marks the second year some NTCET exams will be held electronically. Modern History and Psychology students will sit electronic exams, following on from English Literary Studies students who sat their exams for the first time electronically last year.
NTCET results are scheduled to be released at 7.30 am, Tuesday, 17 December, 2019.
