Incredibly challenging final two years of school

‘These students have managed an incredibly challenging final two years of school. They should be proud of what they’ve achieved and I wish them all the best in their HSC exams.’

Management of the HSC is no small feat, with this year’s schedule running across 18 days, involving around 76,000 students, 126 exams and 780 exam centres.

HSC exam timetable a complex process

NESA CEO Paul Martin said planning the HSC exam timetable was a complex process, designed to ensure every student has an opportunity to show what they know. ‘Each year, we work to ensure that the HSC timetable for each student is as fair and equitable as possible, so everyone has the opportunity to be at their best for the written exams.

‘NESA has been working hard to consolidate the lessons we learnt from running the HSC during a pandemic and are ready to put what we have learnt in place to further full proof the HSC for 2022.’

All 2022 HSC students can access their timetable on Students Online from 9am today. The full 2022 HSC written exam timetable will be available here at 10am today.
