Assessment, Certification and Examination (ACE) Manual
The Assessment Certification Examination (ACE) website has been developed to provide current, easily accessible information to principals, teachers, parents and students about the rules and procedures set by the Board of Studies for secondary education in New South Wales.
The ACE website supersedes the ACE Manual (2005).
ACE currently provides up-to-date information on the Board of Studies’ policies in relation to the Higher School Certificate.
ACE will be updated with information on Years 7–10 curriculum and assessment, and policy changes related to the abolition of the School Certificate and the introduction of a new credential as soon as these changes are finalised.
The mandatory curriculum requirements for the Record of School Achievement are accessible on the ACE website.
