* There is no comparable NSW HSC course for this TCE course. Contact the relevant institution for information on that institution’s policy regarding TCE courses that have no comparable NSW HSC course.

1. In the NSW HSC there is a small number of multi-level subject areas (English, mathematics, music and LOTE) which enable advanced students to study extension courses. Students undertaking an extension course must also study the underpinning course. Some institutions, for some courses, award selection rank adjustments for achievement in both courses. In such cases, TCE students undertaking this TCE course will be considered for the same pattern of subject adjustments as NSW HSC students undertaking the comparable course listed in this table and may be eligible to receive more than one adjustment.Go back to first reference of footnote 2.

2. TCE has a number of courses that are 8 credit points only. Combination of paired courses required to meet NSW equivalence.Go back to first reference of footnote 1.
