2015 HSC examination papers and marking guidelines now available

The 2015 HSC examination papers and the marking guidelines are now available on the BOSTES website.

Marking guidelines are developed by the examination committee and are used for marking student responses. They show the criteria associated with each mark or mark range for each question. The marking guidelines for some examinations (and some questions) include sample answers or 'answers could include'. A grid mapping each question in the examination to course outcomes and content as detailed in the syllabus, is also included.
