​New HSC course - investigating science

27 Jul 2018

HSC students in 2019 will be the first to sit exams in the new Investigating Science course. While Senior Science has been disbanded, Investigating Science is not a replacement for Senior Science; it is an entirely new course with a broad and rigorous curriculum. 

Investigating Science provides students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of the ethical, social, economic and political influences on science and scientific research in the modern world. 

Some universities are still considering whether to accept Investigating Science as adequate preparation for university studies. For the most up-to-date information, download Steps to Uni for Year 10 Students, which has been updated to reflect these changes. Alternatively, check with the universities.
