HSC exams start today

WITH less than four hours until the first HSC exam begins, students across the state are mentally and emotionally preparing themselves, being reminded by their parents to stay calm and focus and above all, to do the best they can.

At 1.50pm, Year 12 students will pick up their pens and begin their English (Standard and Advanced) papers.

The Daily Examiner will be speaking to Grafton High School students later today to gauge their reaction on how they think their first exam progressed, how many of them experienced butterflies, how well they think they performed and their thoughts heading into their next exam.

We will also be asking if the students have any advice they would like to share with their fellow peers as they prepare to commence their individual papers at a later date.

The Daily Examiner would also like to wish all 2012 HSC students the very best of luck.

The 2012 HSC exams extend from today until November 8.
