HSC 2019 English: Standard and Advanced
Although the School did not run an English Standard class for Form V in 2018, we are hoping to offer an English Standard class for HSC 2019 for boys currently in Form V who feel that they would benefit from the different requirements of this course, after their experiences in English Advanced this year.
In past years, ATAR outcomes have complicated this choice, but we have been told that the application of the common scale for English courses will be done in a more sophisticated way in HSC 2019 and that this consideration should no longer restrict the choice to take English Standard instead of English Advanced, where that is a more appropriate choice for an individual boy.
The English Department will be providing further advice to boys on this question in class and one-on-one. Boys should speak with Mr Rudge (EPR) if they have questions about this matter.
The School needs supervisors for the 2018 HSC Examinations (18 October – 9 November). The NSW Education Standards Authority pays a rate of approximately $20 per hour for HSC examination supervisors. Parents who do not have a child or near relative at Grammar sitting for the HSC this year are invited to apply. Supervisors must have a current Working With Children Check (WWCC).
