Student credentials

Students studying in NSW high schools are issued with credentials when they leave school.

Year 10 onwards: Record of School Achievement

Students who leave school before receiving their HSC will be awarded the Record of School Achievement (RoSA).

The RoSA shows grades, or acknowledes participation, in all a student’s courses right up until the time they leave school, even if they leave in Year 11 or 12.
You can read more about the RoSA here.

Year 12 Higher School Certificate

The Higher School Certificate is the highest educational award in New South Wales schools. It is awarded to students who have satisfactorily completed Years 11 and 12 at secondary school. To be eligible, students must meet HSC course requirements and sit for the statewide HSC examinations. The HSC is an internationally recognised credential that provides a strong foundation for students wishing to pursue tertiary qualifications, vocational training or employment.

See a sample HSC Record of Achievement.
