Steady improvement

IN the 11 years since the introduction of the updated HSC, there has been a steady improvement, according to the president of the Board of Studies NSW, Tom Alegounarias.

Compared with 2001, there are over 8000 more students who receive an HSC, over 2000 of them from rural and regional NSW.

The number of students achieving a top band result in a course has grown by almost 6500 since 2001. The number of “all-rounders”, students who receive a top band result in 10 or more units, has almost quadrupled since 2001.

Mr Alegounarias said the proportion of students achieving results in the top bands for their HSC had stabilised at a very high level of the past five years.

“This year’s HSC picture is one of stability and rigour. The trend over the past five years of having over 10 per cent of students achieving in top band continues, and 39 per cent are placed in the top two bands.”
