Result inquiries: anomalous result inquiries from principals

ACE 9026

Last Updated: 1 April 2019

Principals may seek an explanation of the results of their school’s most recent HSC candidature in any course where the performance of the group is below expectations. This service is not an avenue of appeal.

Inquiries must be supported by the principal’s reason for expecting a different result. Inquiries will be thoroughly investigated by NESA. The student name and number and the reason for the inquiry should be included.

A brief written explanation of the results will be forwarded as soon as possible.

Result inquiries will only be considered if they are received in writing from the principal by the closing date (see the HSC key dates and exam timetables). They should be forwarded to the Executive Director, Curriculum, Teaching and Assessment at NESA.
