HSC hub

Please visit the NSW floods: advice and resources page on NESA's website if you have been impacted by the floods.

Welcome to the HSC hub

Year 12 COVID-19 test results will be prioritised by NSW Health.

Year 12 students – when you get a COVID-19 test please make sure you tell your GP or testing clinic that you are
currently doing your HSC. This will ensure that your test results are prioritised to help minimise disruption to your schooling and study. NSW Health is reassuring HSC students who have flu-like symptoms to get tested as results will be fast-tracked to facilitate your return to school. You will need to show a negative test result and be symptoms free before you can return to school.

The HSC hub contains high-quality, on-demand resources that teachers can provide to their students to help them prepare for their exams.

Aligned to NSW syllabuses, the hub is a carefully curated central repository for items created by the NSW Department of Education, including Aurora College and WooTube. There is also third party material available.  

Find video lessons and other resources for your HSC subjects. Select a learning area to browse or use the search bar to drill down to specific material.

The HSC hub was created in 2020 – some resources may contain references to 2020 conditions and dates. Please check NESA HSC key dates and exam timetables and coronavirus advice.

New material has been added in 2021.

Students should follow the advice of their teachers when choosing material.​

VET students should review the latest department updates for information on the 2022 floods.
