Testing time for students

The 2020 HSC written exam timetable has been released for the 75,000 students sitting the exams this year.

After many years of learning, Year 12 students only have another five months to prepare for the HSC exam which will start on October 20.
The 2020 HSC written exam timetable has been released for the 75,000 students sitting the exams this year.
NESA CEO Paul Martin said the timetable would provide the certainty that students, teachers and parents have been looking for around the HSC.
“Students have known that the HSC would be going ahead and this timetable provides the certainty many have been seeking about when their exams will take place,” Mr Martin said.
“This timetable starts five days later giving students some extra time at school after the Spring holiday period while keeping to the original time frame for releasing results.
“I want to reassure parents and students that the exams will be conducted in line with the expert health advice at the time of the exams, which are still five months away.”
NSW schools are supporting the return of HSC students to the classroom from this week with HSC students receiving on average three to four days at school each week.
“I trust that now students have a definitive plan and timing for the exams that they can focus on achieving their best as they return to school,” Mr Martin said.
Students will receive their HSC results on December 18.
