HSC practical and oral language examinations begin!

Although the HSC examinations may seem like a long way off, for a significant number of students they are just around the corner.

Throughout Term 3, around half of all HSC students will undertake a language oral exam, performance or submit a project or major work.

Society and Culture is the first examination of 2014, with the PIPs due on Monday 28 July. This will be followed by the Modern Hebrew oral examinations on Thursday 31 July and Dance performance examinations on Monday 4 August.

Information has been sent to schools for appropriate submitted works, and is also available via Schools Online. The examination schedule for practical and performance examinations can be downloaded from the BOSTES website.  The language oral examination timetable is also available on the BOSTES website.

School-specific marking dates for all itinerantly marked subjects will be posted on Schools Online at least two weeks before the subject’s examination period. Principals will be sent an email when this information is published.
