Alternatively, you must achieve a minimum overall average mark of 60 in the HSC exams or interstate equivalent. (Other factors, including your ATAR and other attempted studies, are taken into consideration with your average mark. Therefore, achieving the average mark does not guarantee you an offer.) Only relevant state Board-approved academic subjects are included when reviewing your average. For instance, in the NSW HSC, we will consider your results from your 10 best units from Category A and B Board Developed courses. These 10 units will include 2 units of English and a maximum of 2 units of Category B courses.
