Higher School Certificate

95 Higher School Certificate

(1) Higher School Certificates are to be granted by the Authority to students--
(a) who have been granted a Record of School Achievement or who have attained such other qualifications as the Authority considers satisfactory, and
(b) who--
(i) have attended a government school, or
(ii) have attended a registered non-government school to which a current certificate of accreditation for presentation of candidates for the Higher School Certificate applies, or
(iii) have attended a school outside New South Wales recognised by the Authority or a TAFE establishment, and
(c) who have participated, to the Authority's satisfaction, in courses of study which have been determined under this Act as appropriate to be undertaken by candidates for the Higher School Certificate, and
(d) who have been accepted by the Authority as having satisfactorily completed those courses of study, and
(e) who have, to the Authority's satisfaction, undertaken the requisite examinations or other forms of assessment, and
(f) who have complied with any requirements prescribed by the regulations or any requirements imposed by the Minister or the Authority.
(2) The requisite examination or other assessment must include a public examination conducted on a State-wide basis.
(3) The Authority may refuse to grant a Higher School Certificate to a student whose attendance or application at school has been of such an unsatisfactory character that the grant of the certificate would not, in the opinion of the Authority, be justified.
