Year 12 Student Declaration and Permission for WACE


ALL Year 12 students are required to complete the Student Declaration and Permission in the student portal at:  

The deadline for the declaration has been extended to Thursday, 8 September 2022.

This declarartion states that students are aware of the requirements to achieve the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) and for sitting the ATAR Course examination.

These requirements are listed in the Year 12 Information Handbook which can be found here.

Please note: Students will be required to complete the Student Declaration and Permission when they log in to the portal before they can gain access to other important information such as their examination timetable and results. 


All Year 12 students will be asked to give permission for the following:

(a)    Release of their name should they win an award
The School Curriculum and Standards Authority award winners are published in the media and on the Authority’s website, if permission to do so has been given by the student.

(b)    Use of school work for creating support materials
The Authority is seeking permission for the use of the school work produced during 2021, e.g. assignments, projects, portfolios, test, school-based exam responses.

(c)    Use of examination responses (written and practical)
The Authority is seeking permission for the use of:
•    ATAR course written and practical examination responses (copyright owned by the student); and
•    images and sound recordings of the student in photographs, audio recordings and audio visual recordings that are made during the ATAR course practical examinations (copyright owned by the State of Western Australia).

Year 12 students are encouraged to discuss each of the above questions with their parents or carers, prior to completing the Student Declaration and Permission online. If the student is under 18 years of age, and has not discussed their responses with their parent, they will not be able to proceed further with their submission. This procedure ensures that the student cannot complete the Student Declaration and Permission unless they click on ‘Yes’ to the condition ‘I have discussed my responses to the above questions with my parents/guardians’.
