HSC Exam Papers
View HSC examination papers from previous years using the links below. Each examination paper is accompanied by Notes from the Marking Centre and Marking Guidelines.
Notes from the Marking Centre contain information regarding the strengths and weaknesses of candidates’ responses.
Marking guidelines are developed by the examination committee and are used at the marking centre. We recommend reading the Notes from the Marking Centre and Marking Guidelines alongside the relevant syllabus, the examination paper, and other support documents to assist teaching and learning in that course.
The format and specifications of many HSC examination papers changed for 2010.
