What actions should students undertake when transferring to NSW during Years 7 - 10?

Students transferring during Years 7-10 should obtain from their school copies of their reports, other evidence of their attainments and details of courses studied at their school. This information should then be presented to the principal of the receiving school.

Students transferring during Year 10 will have their attainments in all similar courses (based on the assessment details provided by the previous school) recognised by the receiving school. If the curriculum organisation of the new school does not allow the transferring student to meet all the mandatory curriculum requirements for the School Certificate, the principal of the new school may deem the student to have completed the mandatory requirements provided that the student provides documentary and/or other evidence to the principal’s satisfaction.
