In order to receive the HSC, students in NSW are now required to demonstrate a minimum standard of literacy and numeracy. This is the level of reading, writing and mathematical ability needed for everyday life after school.
To show they meet the HSC minimum standard, students need to achieve Level 3 or 4 in short online reading, writing and numeracy tests of skills for everyday life.
All NSGHS students in Year 10 will sit these tests on Wednesday 27th November in periods 1-4. A formal notification, including detailed task instructions will be issued to students shortly.
