1.2 Rights and responsibilities of students in ensuring the intellectual integrity of their work
As a student you have a right to expect:
- respect from your peers and your teachers

As a student you have a responsibility to:
- understand what is required of you
- fulfil the school's requirements for your study
- be fair and honest in all aspects of your work
- respect the rights and integrity of your peers and teachers
- make sure your work is your own.
What can students expect in terms of guidance for the HSC and assessment?
There are a lot of things that NESA and schools put in place to ensure that students can access the information they need.
- Read the Rules and Procedures for the HSC
- The school has an assessment policy that explains the school's requirements and what students should do if, for example, they are absent for a task.
- Each school will give students information about each task and when it is due.
- For help with research tasks, teachers and the teacher-librarian assist students with accessing. and using information as well as correctly acknowledging sources.
As a student, your most important responsibility is to make sure that everything you do for the HSC is all your own work.
