Purpose of this site

This website aims to support teachers, students and parents seeking information about performance standards for Higher School Certificate courses. It contains student responses to past examination questions. The responses were all written under examination conditions. 

Responses aligned to the borderline between two performance bands demonstrate characteristics typical of performance at the lower end of the higher of the two bands. 

The responses provide material that demonstrates for teachers, students and parents the quality of work typical of the relevant standard.

The Board of Studies NSW periodically reviews the website to determine the continuing relevance of existing material and the need for new material.

The website allows for multiple search options. You can select filters to find the type of response you wish to view.
