Area of Study

NSW HSC teachers and students will be familiar with the Area of Study, an aspect of the Standard and Advanced English courses set for study by both Year 11 Preliminary and Year 12 HSC students.

There are two courses for study for students to choose from in the NSW HSC - Advanced and Standard. The Area of Study component is common to both courses. It requires students to:

  • undertake an intense study of the Area of Study by studying a prescibed text and related texts of students choosing
  • write creatively about the Area of Study
  • analyse texts related to the Area of Study.

In Year 11 the Area of Study is chosen by the school, whereas in Year 12, the Area of Study is prescibed. 'Belonging' is the current Area of Study.

Below are resources for both Year 11 and Year 12 students and teachers.
