The 2020 HSC written exam timetable has been released.
National Education Standards Authority (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 are seeking about when their exams will take place,” Martin said.
“This timetable starts five days later giving students some extra time at school after the Autumn holiday period while keeping to the original timeframe 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.
“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,” Martin said.
According to the timetable, 120 written exams will commence from October 20, with 51 oral language exams to start on August 15.
Students will receive their HSC results on December 18.
All 2020 HSC students can access their personalised exam timetables via their Students Accounts.
