Navigating HSC subject selection
We know that sorting out your subject selection for HSC can be tricky, we want to help by providing you with information straight from the Board of Studies, the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) and from our faculties and staff.

What we'll cover
We will make sure you're familiar with what you'll be doing during HSC subject selection - but also with how your subject selections may affect what adjustment factors (previously known as bonus points) you may be eligible for, what the difference is between assumed knowledge and prerequisites and how the uni admission and scholarships application process works. Plus, we'll give you time either before or after the program to get information and answers to any specific questions you may have.
