student handbook


Students receive two attempts at every assessment which is provided for in their course fees. A resubmission, or second attempt, is an edit of the first attempt to provide the necessary evidence of competency unless the submission evidence cannot be edited due to its nature (eg anaesthetic records).

Students may be marked as Not Satisfactory if they have presented evidence in a way that is not in line with the assessor guide or requires further clarification.

Sometimes student reenrollment to compete the subject/unit of competency will not add to their learning, so we allow a third submission, or reattempt. This helps to keep additional course enrolment fees to a minimum for students (as a reattempt fee is much cheaper than reenrolment) and it avoids unnecessary double ups of study time and workload with no additional learning.

A fee is chargeable to cover the additional Educator time as this was not included in the course fees.

A free third attempt may be granted by an Educator if one minor point needs review by the student.

Any student may request a third attempt for any assessment where more than 2 points, but less than 50% of the overall required points, are Not Satisfactory.

If more than 50% of the overall required points are Not Satisfactory, then a third attempt is not allowed. The assessment is resulted as Not Satisfactory and the subject is compiled and the units resulted. Reenrolment is then needed to graduate from the course.

Where third attempts are granted the student will pay the associated fee for the extra attempt PRIOR to submitting the attempt. This fee is in addition to their set course fee and any instalment payment plans that may be in place.

Third attempts must be arranged within 21 days of receiving feedback for the affected assessment, otherwise the subject will be resulted as Not Satisfactory as reenrolment will be required.

The third attempt must be submitted following normal assessment submission procedures and is marked accordingly.
