2014 HSC examination papers now available, marking guidelines soon available

The 2014 HSC examination papers are now available and the marking guidelines will soon be available on the BOSTES website.

Marking guidelines are developed by the examination committee and are used for marking student responses. They are in a table format and show the criteria associated with each mark or mark range for each question. The marking guidelines for some examinations (and some questions) include sample answers or 'answers may include'.

A copy of the mapping grid, which maps each question in the examination to course outcomes and content as detailed in the syllabus, is also included.
