HSC results released Wednesday 16 December

2015 HSC results will be delivered to students by email and SMS from 6am on Wednesday 16 December. Students should visit Students Online before 5pm on Tuesday 15 December to ensure their contact details are correct.

Students can also access their results online from 6am on Wednesday 16 December, via Students Online or one of the other HSC delivery sites, or, using their student number and HSC PIN (created when they activated their Students Online account).

At the same time, principals can access their students’ HSC results via Schools Online.

Students will be able to download, save and print their full HSC credentials from Students Online from Wednesday 30 December. Eligible students will also receive a HSC testamur in the post from Wednesday 20 January 2016. More details are available on the Students Online homepage.

The 2015 HSC merit lists will be published progressively on the BOSTES website from Tuesday 15 December:

  • First in Course – students who come first in an HSC course (provided their result is also in the top band).
  • Top Achievers in Course – students who are in the top places in each course and who have also achieved a top band result.
  • Distinguished Achievers – students who have received a top band result in one or more HSC courses.
  • All-round Achievers – students who are distinguished achievers for courses totalling 10 or more units.

Schools can see the names of any of their students who are placed on the merit lists via Schools Online.

The HSC Inquiry Centre (1300 13 83 23) opens at 8am on Wednesday 16 December. This phone service offers a valuable opportunity for students to speak to experienced BOSTES staff about all aspects of their results.
