BOSTES is continuing to expand the use of personalised examination materials that are pre-printed with a student’s number, centre number and, generally, their name.
Personalised examination materials reduces work for students during the examination, and allows greater efficiency in identification when answer booklets are scanned for processing and onscreen marking.
Depending on the examination, students may be given a personalised:
- multiple-choice answer sheet
- question/answer booklet
- writing booklet
For the 2015 HSC the examinations listed below will have new or revised personalised question/answer booklets and/or personalised writing booklets.
Sample examination materials are available to download from the syllabus section of the BOSTES website.
|Examination||Type of personalised booklet|
|Business Studies||Sections III and IV – 16 page writing booklet|
|Drama||16 page writing booklet|
|English Extension 1||24 page writing booklet|
|Music 1||12 page question/answer booklet|
|Music 2||12 page question/answer booklet|
