Congratulations on finishing your HSC. You made it.
The end of the exams marks the end of your school career for most of you, and you can now look forward to a new chapter in your life - university, training, travel or work.
HSC assessment ranks available
Your assessment ranks are now available via your Students Online account - log in with your student number and PIN. Your rank is used in the moderation process to determine your final assessment mark for each of your courses. Your assessment mark makes up 50% of your final HSC mark. See understanding HSC results for more information.
What is moderation?
Moderation is the process we use to adjust assessment marks so they are fair.
We can't fairly compare school assessment marks because each school sets and marks their own tasks. But all students on a course take the same HSC exam that is marked the same way. So, we use exam marks as a common scale to adjust assessment marks - this is the moderation process.
Your HSC results will be delivered via email and text message from 6am on Thursday 14 December. You will also be able to access your results via your Students Online account.
It's a good idea to log in now to check your contact details are correct, as your results will be sent to the mobile number and email address recorded in your account. You can update them until 5pm on Wednesday 13 December. Also check the spelling of your name, as this will appear on your credentials. If it is incorrect, email firstname.lastname@example.org and attach proof of ID. Please note there will be a fee for name changes after 13 December.
Your HSC credentials will be available to download on Wednesday 20 December.
