Major changes to School Certificate from 2012

On 4 August 2011, the NSW Minister for Education announced that School Certificate tests would not continue beyond 2011.

The Minister's announcement also outlined plans for the Board of Studies to continue to consult with stakeholders to develop a plan for a new credential for students who leave school before receiving their HSC.

The 2011 School Certificate will not be affected.
