School Certificate Review update

A new Question and Answer page has been set up on the Board's website to help teachers, parents and students understand the review of the School Certficate.

The School Certificate tests will be held for the last time in 2011.

From 2012 onward, a new credential will be provided for students who leave school prior to receiving their HSC. The Board will release a model for a new credential for consultation in the next few weeks.

The new Q&A page will be added to as needed and has been designed to tell teachers and parents what they need to know for 2011 and beyond.
