With a multitude of different HSC subjects on offer, selecting HSC subjects is not simple.
According to UTS Insearch’s Dean of Studies, Sally Payne, students should look for subjects they are passionate about.
“Your son or daughter should select subjects that make them happy, ones that interest and even inspire them, and motivate them to put in the hard work. Avoid the temptation to push them in a particular direction,” she said.
Ms Payne says students should also ask for a range of subject advice from teachers, parents and career advisors.
Students should check if their preferred university degree has any prerequisites or recommended HSC courses.
