2015 HSC Study Guide - go online for more

Teachers are reminded that the 2015 HSC Study Guide, published on 15 June, is online. All the information from the printed version plus additional online-only material, subjects and videos and direct links are available.

Videos include teachers working through exam questions for various subjects and include what to expect in language oral exams. These can be viewed with students in class and provide an opportunity to discuss exam technique and preparation. Other videos cover useful tips on Major Projects.

Additional subjects online include:

  • Design and Technology
  • Engineering Studies
  • Software Design and Development
  • Textiles and Design

For the first time the guide has been written by BOSTES Curriculum Inspectors and staff, experienced NSW teachers and 2014 high achieving students. It includes:

  • 49 articles from teachers
  • 45 HSC courses
  • 18 online videos on a range of popular subjects
  • advice on oral and performance exams
  • general advice on Music and language courses
  • general study advice
  • tips for parents
  • links to further information.

To assist HSC students, they were sent a Students Online eBulletin with information and a link to the online Study Guide version. If students did not receive an email they can call Students Records on (02) 9367 8001 and provide their preferred email details.
