Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where will the questions be coming from? Can’t I just find these myself?

    While NESA does provide sample questions/answers, the questions and answers for each of these exams are written by our teachers who have had multiple years of HSC marking experience and are currently teaching the new syllabus. These questions are unique and are not available anywhere else. Please click here to view our list of teachers.

  • What sort of feedback will I expect to receive on my responses?

    In addition to a mark being provided, you will also receive short comments.  Additionally, you will receive mark criteria and exemplar responses/solutions to all questions.  Depending on the subject, the amount of feedback will vary.

  • Who will be providing the feedback on my papers?

    Teachers with multiple years of HSC marking experience will be providing feedback. Please click here to view our list of teachers.

  • How close will these questions be to my Trial and Final exam?

    While we don’t know what the questions in the NESA exam (and your school’s Trial papers) will be, all questions will be written based on what we expect to see in future exams. Advice provided by NESA, including sample/specimen questions will be used for us to formulate these questions. Therefore, you may see similar questions in your Trials/Finals, but we cannot guarantee that these questions will be asked again.

  • What if I am already performing really well/struggling with a particular subject. How will these exams benefit me?

    The difficulty with the 2020HSC exams, particularly for English, Mathematics Standard and the Sciences (among others) is that this content has not yet been assessed with a common exam. Therefore, no matter your current level of achievement, access to the help that these provide is vital. For higher achieving students, it’s a chance to refine and pick up a few more marks. For students who have not performed well in their previous tasks, it’s the chance to find out where the gaps are. There is no better way than preparing for the major exams than by simulating the real thing!

  • Is there benefit in participating in the HSC Live Webinar as well as these simulated exams?

    Definitely! Our webinars are designed to cover vital course content, provide advice on how to approach types of questions and to view exemplar responses. You definitely serve to benefit from increasing your knowledge across each subject. These simulated exams give you a chance to put this into action!

  • What if I haven’t yet covered all of the topics for this exam?

    It’s still a valuable experience to sit for these exams as you should have covered 90-100% of the content by this time.  For questions from the syllabus you have not yet covered, you will still receive exemplar responses to use later.

  • How do I access the exam papers?

    Closer to the 6th July, you will be directed to our student portal where you will be able to download the exam papers. This portal will also contain information about how to complete and submit the exam, and will be where we publish your results and feedback.
