Yr12 Advice

 

Year 12 is a busy time for students as they study for the Higher School Certificate and make plans for life after school.

 

HSC Support

A range of online resources is available to help students and parents understand the HSC and prepare for assessment and examinations.

  • Students Online is a useful website for students.
  • Year 12 students can set up their personal profile on Students Online and access support materials including the HSC exam timetable and answers to frequently asked questions about the HSC.
  • Students can prepare for the final exams by looking at past HSC Exam papers here
  • Find the Parent Guide for Year 11 and 12 students here. Here you will find information on the HSC,  HSC syllabus, exams, special provisions and illness, reporting, replacement statements, awards and resources.

 

What do you plan to do after Year 12?
