2015 HSC Elective Survey now open

Each year to help prepare for marking, BOSTES asks schools to provide information on Modules, Areas of Study, Depths Studies and Electives in particular subjects via the HSC Elective Survey.

As there are new course prescriptions in Drama and English in 2015, and the revised Stage 6 Society and Culture syllabus has been implemented for Year 12 this year, the results of the survey will have a significant impact on planning. Schools are therefore requested to take the time to provide this information.

Survey responses are requested by Friday 12 June.

The full list of courses being surveyed this year is:

• Drama
• English - STANDARD
• English - ADVANCED
• English - EXTENTION 1
• English - ESL
• Society and Culture

The Electives Survey is in Schools Online > Examination Options and Scheduling. Detailed instructions are available in Schools Online > Downloads > Memos and Documents > HSC Written Examinations.
