HSC assessment: VET Industry Curriculum Frameworks HSC examination
Last Updated: 25 July 2018
Changes to ACE rules and procedures are occurring to reflect the Stronger HSC Standards reforms.
NESA strongly encourages all ACE users to review the Summary of Changes that may impact the below.
The HSC examination is independent of the competency-based assessment undertaken during the course and has no impact on student eligibility for AQF VET qualifications.
Students must enter separately for the examination.
The examinable outcomes and content, including a list of the examinable units of competency that the examination is based on, are contained in the syllabus for the VET Industry Curriculum Frameworks Course Information.
The HSC examination specifications, which describe the format of the external HSC examination, are contained in the assessment and reporting document for the Industry Curriculum Framework.
The VET Industry Curriculum Framework HSC examination is reported as a separate entry on the HSC Record of Achievement. The mark achieved by the student in the examination is reported on the HSC Record of Achievement. The mark may be used by the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) to contribute to the student’s ATAR.
Students who complete a VET Industry Curriculum Framework HSC examination and are leaving school without completing the Higher School Certificate will have their VET Industry Curriculum Framework examination reported on the Record of School Achievement (RoSA) or the Transcript of Study (for students ineligible for the RoSA).
