AMEB exams may be scheduled during school holidays and on long weekends that fall within the exam period.

Advise exam dates to avoid when filling in the ‘Scheduling Request’ section of your AMEB exam enrolment when you enrol.

The enroller should use the AMEB Important Dates checklist to ensure they have all the information they need before they enrol a student in an exam.
