Practice Tests

Just how good are you? Test yourself!

29 HSC examinations contain multiple choice sections. Selections from these past papers are available here to assist you in your studies. Examples from recent exams have been added.

The following links are for your personal interest and should not be used for any actual testing purposes. Care has been taken to ensure that the questions and answers are correct and fully edited, but small errors of layout, display and typography may still appear in different browsers and on different systems as development continues.

You should also note that syllabuses may change over time. Consequently, some questions from previous tests or examinations may not be relevant for the current year. Also, there may be content examined in the current year that has not been examined in previous years.

All practice tests require the latest version of Flash 9 installed. [See FAQ for assistance]
