All HSC students will get the opportunity to complete their studies in 2021, with the full complement of HSC exams to go ahead from November 9, 2021. Students will be able to sit their HSC exams and receive their results in time for university offers to be made.
The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) has issued a revised timetable, with 110 exams taking place over 19 days, ending on December 3.
Students will receive their ATARs on January 20, 2022, with their HSC results released on January 24.
Strict COVID safe protocols supported by NSW Health will be in place to protect students, exam supervisors and school staff when HSC exams commence.
The protocols for a COVID-safe HSC require exam supervisors to be fully vaccinated and strongly encourage eligible HSC students to receive two vaccine doses before exams start.
68,710 students are on track to receive the HSC in 2021, according to the HSC Enrolment Snapshot which was released on Monday by NESA.
