New Layout of Exam

From 2019 onward, the layout of the HSC Ancient History exam has changed. 

Now, questions in Section Three of the exam will contain two or three parts, with one question worth between ten and fifteen marks. The Section in worth a total of twenty five marks.

While pre-2019 HSC Exams are still relevant study tools, keep in mind that the structure of the Personality questions is different to what you will receive in your HSC and Trials exams.

The new structure may require you to demonstrate wider knowledge of your topic, with the possibility of more questions.

You should also be prepared to make judgements about your studied personality, and argue this throughout an extended response.

Ultimately, this section is assessing your ability to communicate historical knowledge and arguments in a clear and thorough manner. Where possible, support your points with historical sources and evidence. As with any other subject, ensure your answer and the historical detail you provide is relevant to the question.
