It’s time to start thinking about HSC trials and how our teachers can help.

Your HSC year is the most important year of your high school academic life. So why not ensure you get the most out of your final years of secondary education.




Will Year 12 Students Still Take Exams and Get an ATAR This Year? Here’s Everything We Know


“Education Minister Sue Ellery explained that instead of having to sit the traditional exam, the ATAR ranking could be based on the results from assessments students complete before the usual examination period.”

The State Government has reassured parents and students that Year 12 ATAR students would be the main priority, reiterating the School Curriculum and Standards Authority stating that no student will be left disadvantaged.

NESA Chief Executive Officer Paul Martin said the timetable would provide the certainty that students, teachers and parents have been looking for around the HSC.

“Students have known that the HSC would be going ahead and this timetable provides the certainty many have been seeking about when their exams will take place,” Mr Martin said.

“This timetable starts five days later giving students some extra time at school after the Autumn holiday period while keeping to the original timeframe for releasing results.

“I want to reassure parents and students that the exams will be conducted in line with the expert health advice at the time of the exams, which are still five months away.”

NSW schools are supporting the return of HSC students to the classroom from this week with HSC students receiving on average three to four days at school each week.

“I trust that now students have a definitive plan and timing for the exams that they can focus on achieving their best as they return to school,” Mr Martin said.

  • 120 written exams will start with English on 20 October and 51 oral language exams will start on 15 August.
  • Students will receive their HSC results on 18 December.
