Students undertaking their HSC this year can start planning their exam weeks with the release of the 2022 timetable.
HSC written exams will start on Wednesday 12 October 2022 with English Paper 1 and finish on Friday 4 November 2022.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the release of the HSC timetable marks the final stage of the school journey for Year 12 students.
“The release of the HSC timetable confirms for the Class of 2022 that they are on the home straight of their high school education,” Ms Mitchell said.
“These students have managed an incredibly challenging final two years of school. They should be proud of what they’ve achieved and I wish them all the best in their HSC exams.”
Management of the HSC is no small feat, with this year’s schedule running across 18 days, involving around 76,000 students, 126 exams and 780 exam centres.
NESA CEO Paul Martin said planning the HSC exam timetable was a complex process, designed to ensure every student has an opportunity to show what they know.
“Each year, we work to ensure that the HSC timetable for each student is as fair and equitable as possible, so everyone has the opportunity to be at their best for the written exams,” said Mr Martin.
“NESA has been working hard to consolidate the lessons we learnt from running the HSC during a pandemic and are ready to put what we have learnt in place to further full proof the HSC for 2022.”
