Update on the School Certificate

The NSW Minister for Education’s announcement on 4 August, 2011 that the School Certificate tests would not be administered beyond 2011 has been widely supported.

The Board will be working hard over the next few months to consult with key stakeholders as part of the process of developing a new credential for students who leave school prior to receiving the Higher School Certificate.
