Important information about privacy
The Board of Studies NSW will provide the personal details and results of all NSW students to the Universities Admissions Centre for the calculation of the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank or ATAR and to TAFE NSW. In addition, your principal and some approved officials from the school system to which your school belongs – the Department of Education and Communities, the Catholic Education Commission or the Association of Independent Schools – will also have access to your results.
The Board 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. The Board 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 Board’s website and provided to the media you will not be eligible to receive associated prizes.
