“What impact is COVID-19 having on Year 12 students and their HSC?” 

Find out the answer in our HSC COVID-19 Impact Research Report







The HSC has never been as stressful and anxiety-inducing for students as it is in 2020. The COVID-19 restrictions forcing tens of thousands of students to study for their HSC from home has only added to the stress of studying for the HSC.

With limited face-to-face teaching time and a greater focus on independent study, students are feeling the pressure of the HSC greater than ever.

The aims of this report are therefore two-fold, analysing the impact of the COVID-19 restrictions upon HSC students across public, selective, private and independent and Catholic school sectors across New South Wales while also observing the effectiveness of schools’ transition to online learning.
