​AARAs

Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments (AARA) are designed by the Queensland Curriculum Assessment Authority (QCAA) to assist students in Year 11 and 12 who have a disability, impairment, and/or medical condition, or experience other circumstances that may be a barrier to their performance in assessment. Should you feel your child requires an AARA please view the AARA folder on our Documents page.

An AARA application must be completed if your student is seeking access arrangements and/or reasonable adjustments to assessment pieces in Year 11 and/or Year 12.  AARAs are school-based applications in Unit 1 and Unit 2, and QCAA based applications and decisions for Unit 3 and Unit 4.

Decisions about a student's AARA eligibility are based on evidence, and considered individually. Students continue working on assessments while decisions are made. All tasks need to be completed but some conditions of the assessment will be modified. Extensions of time need to be negotiated before the due date of an assessment task.

Supporting documentation must be supplied with an AARA application. The supporting documentation that is required is dependent on the individual reasoning for the AARA application.  The application and supporting medical documentation template (if required) are available from the School’s website.

The QCAA recognises that access to medical and health practitioners may be limited as a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic.   If your student is unable to arrange a medical appointments or supply updated medical reports to support an AARA application due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please tick the appropriate box under the Supporting Documentation on Form 1. 

Email completed forms to - AARA@bribieislandshs.eq.edu.au
