HSC exams begin October 15

CLARENCE Valley Year 12 pupils will be among 73,375 students across the state to pick up their pens and commence their 2012 HSC exams on Monday.

Months of revision and long hours spent studying a range of subjects from English and Geography to Visual Arts and Languages will come down to four weeks of examinations stretching between October 15 and November 8.

As many young minds complete their final preparations and cram in additional hours of revision over the weekend, Grafton High School career advisor Scott Barnier is encouraging students to relax and focus on doing the best they can in their exams.

"Do your HSC exams the same way you did your HSC trial exams," he said.

"Just relax, make sure you answer every question and go over your answers to make sure you're happy with them."

Mr Barnier said 108 Grafton High School students will complete their HSC exams this year, down slightly from the 120 who completed their HSC in 2011.

Students sitting for their HSC exams over the next few weeks are encouraged to remain calm, avoid excess stress and panicking and to reassure themselves of their confidence and ability to achieve their desired results.

The first HSC exam paper to be completed next week is English (Standard and Advanced).

Students will sit down to commence this exam at 1.50pm.

The 2012 HSC timetable is available for online viewing at boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/
