Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott today congratulated local students on their HSC results, released today.
“The HSC is a stressful time for students, so the release of results today will be a relief for many,” Mr Elliott said.
“A number of students in Baulkham Hills are among the distinguished achievers in this year’s HSC.”
A total of 411 students from schools in Baulkham Hills were included in the high achievers list this year, with Samuel Thirurajah of Baulkham Hills High School achieving first place in the state in Physics.
“Over 76,000 students sat at least one HSC subject this year, so to have received a mark this high is an incredible achievement that these students should be very proud of,” Mr Elliott said.
“The HSC is a qualification that will be a pathway to further study for many students. But it is important to remember that it is just one way of getting into the university course or career you want.
“A full record of senior secondary results, including Year 10 and Year 11 results will be available to HSC students on Friday 19 December.
“This year for the first time, students will be able to get their HSC Record of Achievement as a PDF file on 7 January. This will be followed by hard copies on 14 January.
“Having a PDF of their results is a great advantage for HSC students. While many students will receive an ATAR and a university offer, over 30 per cent of students will use their HSC to go straight into employment, TAFE or an apprenticeship,” Mr Elliott said.
Results are available online and by SMS using a secure system requiring a Student Number and HSC PIN. For more information on HSC results go to www.studentsonline.bos.nsw.edu.au
The Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards HSC Results Inquiry Centre 1300 13 83 23 is now open for students with questions about their HSC results.
