Sydney uses the HSC ATAR System in Year 11 and 12

From Years 5-10, students mainly focus on general English, Maths and Science.

In year 11 and 12, students complete subjects as part of their ATAR studies, which is the system used in New South Wales to get admission into university.

HSC subjects and subject performance is used to calculate your.

🌃 What is the HSC?

Exactly how the mythical HSC works is a constant source of confusion for parents and students - sometimes even for those currently undertaking HSC subjects. Hopefully all of the following information - explained for you by a HSC survivor! - will clarify the key points of confusion.

Subjects:

The HSC works on a “units” system. Most classes are two units (English, Math, Chemistry etc), but extension subjects are only one unit (English Extension, Math Extension etc).

In year 11 you are required to take a minimum of 12 units (for most people this is 6 subjects).

In year 12 you are only required to take 10 units. Regardless of how many units you take, only the 10 best units will count towards your ATAR. Each unit is worth 50 marks and therefore for the standard 2 unit course you will receive a mark out of 100.

Internal and External Assessment:

For every course, regardless of the units, your final grade is made up of:

  • 50% internal marks
  • 50% the external exam

Except it’s slightly more complicated than that. Your internal marks are never given to NESA (The New South Wales Education Standards Authority). What gets entered is your rank within your cohort at your school.

These two systems are used to calculate your final ATAR which you receive at the end of Year 12.

The HSC system can be quite complex, and understanding what's going on can be very daunting for new students and parents. If you ever need some assistance with HSC studies or subject specific help, KIS Academics tutors have a thorough understanding of their subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for HSC internal and external assessments.

As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me someone who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

ATAR

Hi, I’m Charlie! I’m a student at the Australian National University doing a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and a Bachelor of Arts with a major in English.

I am passionate about getting to know my students and working closely with them to create carefully tailored lessons that target key concerns. This understanding of individual student needs allows me to effectively teach concepts, along with build confidence and organisational skills. 

As someone that has always engaged in extracurriculars throughout high school and continues to do so in university, I firmly believe that the key to achieving your goals is maintaining a healthy study/life balance. By teaching my carefully refined study skills and learning methods I will ensure that school does not seem too daunting and will help you to maintain high marks whilst leaving time for other activities. 

I enjoy working with students of all ages and have an understanding of what each year group focuses on in regards to Mathematics, English, and Legal Studies. I am also experienced in helping students to prepare for the Selective School Entry Exam. 

I’d love to get to know you and your learning needs in our free 30-minute study skills consultation :)

ATAR

Hey legends! I'm Verdi, a bubbly and passionate student, studying the Bachelor of Veterinary Biology and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Sydney. I graduated with an ATAR of 99.35 and two state ranks, 3rd in NSW in Studies of Religion II and 4th in Business Studies.

As a student myself who didn't always pick things up quickly and required much more time, effort and assistance, I am aware that all students are capable but may require some guidance to succeed and achieve their goals. I want to help my students do this, while giving them life long lessons that they can carry on in the future.

Additionally, going through many challenges in my year 12 year, I was able to identify the most effective study and exam skills. Hence, I would like to share my knowledge, tips and tricks in order to help you fulfil your potential and achieve what you desire as anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Persistence, resilience and hard work will help us achieve this journey together :)

Hey there! I'm Sandrine and I would love to help you achieve your academic goals whilst still enjoying all the activities you love!

I have always been academically driven throughout high school and graduated as the dux of my school. As strange as it sounds...I actually enjoyed studying many of my subjects in school! Learning and studying doesn't have to feel like a chore and I would love to help all feel the same!

My goal is to guide students to efficiently study by sharing the effective learning methods, unique to each subject and student, that others and I have discovered. I've also found many necessary skills integral to excelling in subjects often being overlooked in class so I would love to help students go beyond just content covered in class. Such, alongside assisting in areas of difficulty and require extra clarity, I would love to help other students cruise through their academic journey and achieve their goals!

Nowadays I spend my time studying a bachelor of Actuarial Studies and Data Science at Macquarie University, exploring new places and enjoying time with friends and family.
