Students can now access the lecture recordings and lecture slides. Although there is no substitute for watching the sessions live, we hope the recordings will assist students through the new term and beyond. To access the recordings, students need to login to their free ATAR Notes Lectures account. If they don't yet have an account, they can make one by following the prompts at https://atarnoteslectures.com/nsw. Once logged in, students can click "Your Lectures", navigate to the specific session page, and then click "Watch Again" to access the lecture recording and other resources.
The HSC trial exams are essentially a test-run for the actual HSC exam and an ideal opportunity to get into good study habits, boost your confidence and familiarise yourself with the exam format, plus get a good headstart on achieving your dream ATAR result.

NESA has already distributed details about oral exams for languages, performance exams and submitted works to schools. Your personal exam timetable is available from studentsonline.nesa.nsw.edu.au. This timetable lists your written exams and where you will sit for them (usually at your school). It also lists any other exams you are entered for, including oral exams for languages, performance exams and submitted works. Details of your performance exams or projects such as title of work or category (supplied by your school) are also available via Students Online. If you are undertaking oral or performance exams, we will post the time and venue on Students Online later this year. If there are errors or omissions in the exams you are entered for, contact your school immediately to supply us with the correct information. Take special care if you are entered for a VET course that has an HSC exam. If the exam does not appear on your personal timetable, you have not been entered for it. You must be entered separately for the exam if you expect to sit for it. If you have a disability that affects reading exam questions or responding to them under exam conditions, your school can submit an application for provisions to help you. If you have not already done so, speak to your school if you think this applies to you. The exam starting time is when reading time begins. Arrive at your exam venue well before the time specified. When preparing for your exams, find out what to expect in the exam room and the exam paper, including where to write your answers. For each course you are studying, know the rules and requirements, and what to expect in each exam.
