Welcome to 'Smash the HSC'. Seriously, thanks for dropping by. You look well. This site is designed specifically around the topics studied by students of Callaghan College, Jesmond Senior Campus as they prepare for the HSC. Specific course resources can be found through the menu in the top left corner or via the links below. Some resources are not available through the menu and can only be found through links on specific page - there's a bit too much on here for the menu to handle. Many resources may be partially complete (or partially incomplete, it's a glass-half-full kinda thing) - we upload them as fast as we make 'em! Resources regarding self-improvement can be found in the 'Build your skills' section; you should definitely check those out. Contact details are listed at the bottom of each page for any web-related concerns. Now, get into it, and smash that HSC!
Regardless of what you think of the HSC, or whatever test someone in dull grey clothes, in a grey office with seriously grey hair is forcing you to take, there are some very useful skills being used by humans that transcend the exam. Yeah, I said it - the skills are more important than the tests. Check out every successful person it the world and you'll find them, or someone around them, using at least some of these skills to help create, sell, or control their message. Find the full menu for each section via the big image on the left, and quick links to some of the more popular pages on the right!
Let's make this as simple as possible, if you don't know about all these things you're in for a horrible life. We can't help you beyond that. Expect constant meteor strikes, avalanches on your house, harpies, and termite infestations. So learn them, alright?
This section includes materials being used in specific courses. They are designed specifically for preliminary (year eleven) classes but you go ahead and use them for other things too.
The New South Wales standardised test for senior students is creatively called the Higher School Certificate. The English component is gigantic because... well, no one knows why. Currently, there a four sections each student will need to cover. Each of those breaks down into smaller pieces and then even smaller pieces. We'd need an army of people to cover them all so we've only covered the ones we teach. I mean, to cover them all we'd need, like, a department of teachers and who'd have one of those available?
