All HSC exams WILL go ahead with a timeline to be announced tomorrow – as the first written test is revealed
- High school students will sit all their HSC exams this year after deal reached
High schools and universities have reached a deal to ensure all HSC exams will go ahead this year with the results released shortly before Australia Day 2022.
Students will get to see the new exam timetable from Friday but a version was accidentally uploaded on Thursday afternoon which detailed the 19 day schedule.
First up is English on November 9 and then closing out the exam period is food technology on December 3.
High school students have dealt with more than 18 months of intermittent lockdowns (pictured: Year 12 students at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney line up for the Pfizer vaccine as defence force troops assist)
Lockdowns and remote learning have been a challenge for NSW high school students for the last 18 months – and there have been doubts over whether the exams would be run at all.
In July the authority responsible for managing exams – the NSW Education Standards Authority – announced they would delay exams by one to two weeks in response to the disruptions.
Year 12 students were given more time to prepare for exams or complete their projects – with results, ATAR and university offers to be released as usual.
The October exams were then postponed again on August 27 with the new timetable not released until now.
