Last updated 2:19 PM on 20 March 2017

This year NAPLAN is scheduled to happen on the 9th - 11th May.

This year, students in Year 9 are the first cohort to have the NAPLAN SUPORTopportunity to prove they meet the standard by achieving Band 8 results or above in NAPLAN reading, writing and numeracy tests. Students who achieve Band 8 will not need to sit the online tests later in years 10, 11 and 12.

It is important to remember that while no student will be ineligible to sit for the HSC on the basis of their Year 9 NAPLAN results, it would be a good way to eliminate the need to sit the Minimum Standards in the following years.
