0
13


More than 77,000 students from 890 schools in New South Wales are participating in this year’s Higher School Certificate.

Overseen by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), the HSC is the highest level of attainment you can reach at school in NSW. Participating students with plans to attend university will also receive an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), a number used by universities to help them select students for their courses.

With major projects and oral and performance exams already completed, 123 written exams will be sat over the next five weeks, starting this Thursday, October 17.

Personal exam timetables, with a list of written exams and where students will sit for them (usually at their school), as well as any oral or performance exams and submitted works, are available from Students Online.

Here are the key exam times students need to know for each subject.
