Important information for schools

Scheduling your HSC Language students’ oral examinations

The Languages Oral Online Examination Scheduling function allows teachers to schedule the time and venue for their students’ HSC Language oral examinations.

From Monday 29 May to Friday 2 June schools, will be able to access the Languages Oral Examination Scheduling menu via Schools Online to view the dates/times and venues for all oral language courses. During this period there will be no facility to schedule any examinations: access is provided to give teachers the opportunity to discuss suitable session dates/times with their language students.

From Monday 5 June to Friday 9 June the Languages Oral Examination Scheduling menu will be fully accessible and you will be able to schedule your language students.

In order for your students to be properly identified at the examination centre, please ensure you upload, onto Schools Online, a photograph of each student who is undertaking an Oral Examination. This is easily done from the ‘Browse Student Enrolments/Results’ screen, and must be done before the student’s oral examination can be scheduled by the school.

Once the students have been scheduled, schools will have the option to print a copy of their confirmation sheet from Schools Online. Students should be directed to download their own confirmation sheet and relevant venue location maps through Students Online.

Schools in regional areas where there is no examination venue will not be able to schedule their students’ examinations. If this applies to your school, please contact the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), on (02) 9367 8065 or email: examlang@nesa.nsw.edu.au.

If you choose not to schedule oral examinations for some or all of your students/courses, NESA will schedule them after 9 June.

If you need further information, please go to the ‘Memos and Documents’ section of Schools Online.

Important information for students

Please ensure you are familiar with all the points listed below.

  • After your school has scheduled your examination, you will need to log in to Students Online to download your personalised confirmation sheet along with other information relating to your Languages Oral Examination, such as maps and parking information.
  • If your school does not schedule your oral examination, your confirmation sheet will not be available on Students Online until Monday 10 July. If your examination details are not available on Students Online by this date, you should talk to your teacher or contact NESA on (02) 9367 8065 or email: examlang@nesa.nsw.edu.au.
  • It is unlikely that your examination centre will be your home school. Refer to the venue map and parking information on Students Online for advice on how to get to your examination centre.
  • No alternative arrangements will be made if you fail to attend a scheduled examination. If you are ill on your oral examination day, NESA’s usual processes will apply. Please read the section on illness and misadventure in the Rules and Procedures for HSC Candidates booklet.
  • You should arrive at the examination centre at least 30 minutes before the start time on your confirmation sheet. Note that this start time refers to the start of the exam session and that students do their exams progressively from this time. You must be prepared to wait under supervision to do your exam. You may consult study materials including dictionaries while you are waiting, but you will not be permitted to take these into the examination room.
  • It is strongly recommended that you bring food and drink to have while you wait as there are no food outlets at any of the examination centres. Food and drink cannot be taken into the examination room.
  • You must bring your confirmation sheet with you to the examination. If you lose your confirmation sheet, log in to Students Online and print another one, or bring some form of photo identification such as a driver licence or student card.
  • Please do not wear your school uniform to your oral examination.
  • Should you require wheelchair access, please contact NESA as soon as possible on (02) 9367 8065 or email: examlang@nesa.nsw.edu.au.

All electronic communication devices must be switched off and stored in a pocket or bag while you are at the language examination centre, unless otherwise advised.

NESA staff are not responsible for the security of any material or equipment brought to an examination.
