About the RoSA

This year, the RoSA (Record of School Achievement) is being offered for the first time to NSW students leaving the school systems after Year 10 and before the HSC.

The RoSA has been designed to provide grades for all Stage 5 (Year 10) and Stage 6 (Preliminary) courses completed during secondary education.

Fair grades for everyone
RoSA grades will be determined by teachers, using established guidelines and processes to ensure consistency of judgement.

Teachers are very experienced already in determining grades based on assessments.

As part of introducing the RoSA, the Board will provide further support and resources to make sure grades are given fairly and consistently from school to school.

Only students who leave school and who satisfy eligibility requirements for the RoSA will receive the formal credential.

All students will also have access to a record of their grades through Students Online.

Students who receive their HSC will be able to receive a RoSA at the same time as their HSC, detailing their achievement in their earlier years of study.
