HSC Minimum Standards - FAQ's

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

As part of the Stronger HSC Standards reforms announced last year, from 2020 students in NSW must reach a minimum standard of literacy and numeracy to receive a HSC. 

Frequently asked questions about the minimum literacy and numeracy standard for the HSC are now available on the NESA website.

The FAQs contain information on:

  • the requirements of the minimum standard
  • how students can demonstrate they meet the standard
  • school credentials
  • exemptions from the requirement
  • support for students and schools
  • online literacy and numeracy tests.

Students will have multiple opportunities to demonstrate the standard between Year 9 and when they complete their HSC.

NESA will continue to update parents, students, teachers and the broader community on progress of the HSC reforms and implementation of the minimum standard. Click HERE
