    It is true, exams that count towards your HSC. It can be 'any exam'.

    Generally the first 'assessment task', which could be in the form of an exam, a depth study, or a practical, will occur sometime between weeks 6 to 10, depending on your school.

    Generally the first assessment task will count between 10-30% towards your school mark for the HSC. Again, this depends on your school.

    Term 4 is an assessment term which will feel like others you have completed. The only ‘exams’ will be in class assessment tests eg maths. The first official exams will probably be half yearlys depending on the school. For me these were selected subjects and 4 days (week of good friday) however I know other schools have a 2 week period with all subjects

    There is an assessment block during the second half of term 4, but with the new assessment regulations being only 3 internal assessment tasks with only 1 formal one (unseen exam), I think the exams during this period is going to me minimal seeing as there's not much point assessing people on half a term's worth of content. Most subjects are going to leave the trials as it is, have some sort of prepared exam for the half yearlies (stimulus/essay question given beforehand) an assignment or another prepared exam.
