Research

To maximise your HSC marks, you need to use a variety of resources and we can help.

  • Try searching for articles and information in thousands of magazines, journals, newspapers, encyclopedias and reference books with our  E-Research Resources or through the State Library E-Resources
  • Study Guides are located in the Youth section of our libraries. They can be located in the Library catalogue by doing a general keyword search for the name of a subject, along with the words 'study guide*'. For example, HSC English study guide*  (Tip. * searches for guide and guides).
  • Looking at the past to get ahead? Check out the collection of Past Papers on the NESA website and Learn the Lingo with their glossary of key words.
