Revised arrangements for the completion of Classroom-Based Arrangements (CBAs) published in September 2020 offered flexibility to schools regarding key dates and the window for completion of the CBA process for current third year students, where schools encountered particular difficulties due to Covid-19. This flexibility continues to be available to schools.

Arrangements for current second year students remain unchanged at this time.
