Check your contact details now

It is your responsibility to ensure your details are correct. Go to Personal details in your Students Online account, and check:

  • Is the email address the one you use most often? Remember, you will have left school when the results are delivered, so your school email may not be the best one.
  • Is your postal address correct? Your HSC Testamur will be posted to the address appearing here.
  • Is your name spelt correctly? There is a $17.00 charge if NESA needs to reprint your HSC Testamur due to incorrect spelling, so make sure it is correct.

You are able to update your email address, mobile number and postal address yourself, but your school must update your name for you.

HSC results inquiries

The HSC Results Inquiry Centre (1300 13 83 23) will be available from 8.00am on Thursday 14 December 2017 followed shortly after by other HSC results services

Record of School Achievement (RoSA)

If you leave school before completing your HSC you may be eligible for the Record of School Achievement (RoSA).

Once your school has informed NESA you are eligible for a RoSA, it will be available to download as a free PDF via your Students Online account.

Accessing your Students Online account

All NSW high school students in years 10, 11 and 12 are eligible for a Students Online account. Use your NESA Student Number and PIN to log in and access your personal details, including course enrolments and exam timetable details as they become available.

As soon as your school has provided NESA with your email address you can activate your account and access your accumulating years 10, 11 and 12 results.

Important privacy information 

NESA will provide the personal details and results of all NSW students to the Universities Admissions Centre for the calculation of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank or ATAR, and to TAFE NSW. In addition, your principal and some approved officials from the school system to which your school may belong - the Department of Education, the Catholic Education Commission or Association of Independent Schools of NSW - will also have access to your results.

NESA publishes HSC merit lists on its website and provides these lists to select media outlets. HSC merit lists include the name, school and course/s of all students who, for example, achieve a HSC mark in the top band in any course. NESA does not provide the media with the names or the results of any other students. If you choose not to have your name published on the NESA website and provided to the media you will not be eligible to receive associated awards.

Please read the NESA privacy policy. If you require further information on privacy issues or wish to be removed from a published merit list, please email  the Student Records Team at or phone 9367 8001.
