In order to have a more valid and consistent approach across the multiple-choice sections of examinations, all examination committees have been asked to order the multiple-choice questions according to the level of difficulty. Previously some examinations, like PDHPE and some science examinations, were ordered according to HSC core modules.
This means in the majority of HSC examinations, multiple choice questions will be ordered according to the level of difficulty, starting with easier questions and working up to more challenging questions. There may be exceptions, for example when more than one question relates to the same stimulus text.
