You will be given a grade (A to E) by your teachers for each course you study in Years 10 and 11. For HSC courses, you will receive an HSC assessment mark and an HSC examination mark which together form your overall HSC mark. Your HSC mark will also determine the performance band you achieved for a course.

Understanding grades

What does an ‘A' or ‘E' grade mean and how are they allocated? Your teachers will apply their professional judgement to award the grade that best matches your knowledge, skills and understanding in each course you study in Years 10 and 11.

HSC results

Achieving the HSC is different to getting a driver's license or an ATAR. You do not receive a simple ‘pass' or ‘fail', nor do you get a single rank or mark for all courses. The HSC results are a detailed package showing you the level of knowledge and skills you achieved in each course.

Getting your results

HSC results are released online and by SMS each year.
