HSC finishes today

In what has been another interrupted year for students, the 2021 Higher School Certificate comes to a close at 12.30pm, today with 3,756 Food Technology students finishing the last exam paper.

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said this is a momentous day for the Class of 2021, who have shown incredible resilience and hard work to get to this point.

“Today officially marks the end of 13 years of schooling for 69,000 Year 12 students and I am incredibly happy to see them so triumphantly reach the finish line,” Ms Mitchell said.

“HSC students should be very proud of what they have achieved over the past two years. The resilience, focus and adaptability they have shown will serve them well in the next chapter of their life, whether that is university, vocational training, or employment.

“To safely deliver 400,000 individual exam sessions statewide with no disruption amidst a global pandemic is a huge success.

“I thank the school sectors, principals, teachers, school staff, exam supervisors and invigilators, students and their families for their engagement and adherence to the COVID-safe HSC exam guidelines."

Over the past four weeks, students sat 110 exams across 750 exam venues, with strict COVID-safe protocols in place.

Marking is already underway, with results to be delivered via SMS and email on Monday, January 24.

Students can get their school assessment ranks from this afternoon via Students Online December 30.
