You can make changes to your saved application before you submit it. You can also update your submitted application, such as:

  • update the information you have entered. For example, your contact details or school selections by the due dates.
  • upload documents and supporting evidence. For example, court orders, disability information.
  • withdraw your application before outcomes are released – if you no longer want your child to be considered for placement.

You can also log into your application dashboard to send us messages.

Deadlines for updating your application

Be aware that there are specific dates when you can no longer update your application yourself. You may have to ask the Selective Education Unit to make a change.

If your application details change, it is your responsibility to update your application by the due dates.

For example, there are strict due dates to:

  • submit an application
  • add supporting documents to your reasonable adjustments application
  • change your child's current school
  • change your child's personal details
  • change your school choices
  • submit a request to submit a late application
  • submit a late application.

Check the full list of Key dates for your placement year and program.

Changing your school choices

Ensure you make any changes to your school choices before the specified due date in the Key dates. No changes are possible after this date.

For more information see the Selective high schools and opportunity classes placement procedures.
