HSC test yourself app - study on the go

10 September 2014

Minister for Education Adrian Piccoli today released an app for multiple choice exam questions to help students prepare for the Higher School Certificate (HSC).

Mr Piccoli said the HSC Test Yourself app uses multiple choice questions from previous HSC exams so students can test their knowledge on the go.

"With the HSC written exams starting in October, this app helps students make the most of their study time using information straight from the creator of the HSC — the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES)," Mr Piccoli said.

"This mobile app will allow students to access the tests whenever and wherever they want.

"The app was developed by former Greystanes High School student, Shubham Shah, who saw the opportunity to use BOSTES material for an interactive mobile app.

"Like all sections of the HSC exams, practice is one of the best ways to improve your results in the multiple choice sections."

BOSTES President Tom Alegounarias said the app was a great new learning tool for HSC students.

"The cost to download a course is affordable and everyone has the chance to try some questions before they buy the full set," Mr Alegounarias said.

"The HSC Test Yourself app will help teachers with revision lessons and will also help parents who want to learn more about the types of questions contained in the HSC exams.

"While the app is designed primarily for individual study and self-testing, it will also assist students to test each other in group study activities."

The HSC Test Yourself app can be purchased from the Google Play store and will later be released on Apple devices.
