HSC Credential

You can download your BOSTES credential as a free PDF from Results Services in My Details. Your HSC credentials will include a HSC Testamur, Record of Achievement detailing your Year 12, 11 and 10 results, and personalised course reports for relevant HSC courses. After downloading, remember to save or print your credentials as your Students Online account will only remain open until 30 June, 2017. 

View examples of the HSC credentials here.

In addition to your free HSC credential as a PDF, an HSC Testamur will be posted to eligible students in January 2017. You can order a further copy of your HSC testamur or a printed copy of your Record of Achievement and course reports at a cost of $17.00.

Check your contact details now

It is your responsibility to ensure your details are correct. Go to Personal details in My Details, and check:

  • Is the email address the one you use most often? Remember, you will have left school when the results are delivered, so your school email may not be the best one.
  • Is your postal address correct? Your HSC Testamur will be posted to the  address appearing here.
  • Is your name spelt correctly? There is a $17.00 charge if BOSTES need to reprint your HSC Testamur due to incorrect spelling, so make sure it is correct.

You are able to update your email address, mobile number and postal address yourself, but your school must update your name for you.

Important privacy information 

BOSTES will provide the personal details and results of all NSW students to the Universities Admissions Centre for the calculation of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank or ATAR, and to TAFE NSW. In addition, your principal and some approved officials from the school system to which your school may belong - the Department of Education, or the Catholic Education Commission - will also have access to your results.

BOSTES publishes HSC merit lists on its website and provides these lists to select media outlets. HSC merit lists include the name, school and course/s of all students who, for example, achieve a HSC mark in the top band in any course. BOSTES does not provide the media with the names or the results of any other students. If you choose not to have your name published on the BOSTES website and provided to the media you will not be eligible to receive associated awards.

Please read BOSTES' privacy policy. If you require further information on privacy issues or wish to be removed from a published merit list, please contact us.
