Indian subcontinent HSC students are the pride of our community

Girls out-performed the boys again in NSW HSC 2017 exams, with 83 girls and 38 boys on the merit list as they topped in the state in varied subjects. .

Education Minister Adrian Piccoli said it was an incentive for boys to work harder in 2018.

“It’s a great outcome for the girls in these awards but it’s good to see the performance of government and non-government schools and students from non-English-speaking backgrounds top their subjects,” Mr Piccoli said.

The talents of 121 students across 112 courses were acknowledged. Awards were given to students who got the highest possible band in a course.
