Looking for HSC Maths past papers to practice your skills and apply your knowledge? You’ve come to the right place. Go straight to papers>>
This year you’ve had the opportunity to think mathematically through questioning, communicating, reasoning and reflecting. You’ve developed 21st-century knowledge, skills, understanding, values and attitudes and you’ve been provided with challenges. You’ve been able to generalise, find connections, think critically and creatively, using appropriate technology to support mathematical activity. Your final HSC Maths exam will aim to assess as much of this as possible.
We’ve tried to organise this collection of HSC Maths papers as neatly as possible.There are HSC Maths past papers for HSC Standard Maths, HSC Advanced Maths, HSC Maths Extension 1 Maths and HSC Maths Extension 2 from 2001 right through to 2019 to help you get enough practice.
Past papers are organised and named by course and year. If you find any errors, please let us know. Sometimes, there is only a marking guide available, in others, the marking guide contains sample answers as well. The table usually shows each question and the criteria with each mark or mark range.
The curriculum has changed over the years, as have the names of courses. For example, the HSC course previously called “General Maths” is currently called “Standard Maths”. To keep things simple, we’ve used the current names of courses for all links.
3 Tips to Help you Prepare for Your HSC Maths Exams
- Rework Class and Homework Problems/Examples. Don’t just read them, rework the problems. Write down the steps to help you remember them. Try to do them without looking at the answers.
- Do Lots of Past Exam Papers. Complete past papers under strict exam conditions and don’t cheat by looking at the answers until you’re finished. As you learn from doing past papers, keep a one-page summary of things to remember that are important. It’s good if you write down “Remember to do this” and “Don’t do this”. This will make for a super easy, quick revision reference for you to consult before your actual HSC Maths exams. E.g. Remember to provide valid reasoning when using integration properties.
3 Tips to Help you Ace Your HSC Maths Exams
- Make sure you understand what they have asked. Read the questions carefully and make sure you’re answering the question. Use a highlighter or underline keywords in the question. Often students know how to solve a problem, but they misread or misinterpret the question.
- Communicate your Mathematical knowledge. Examiners are assessing your ability to communicate and reason mathematically. Set your work out logically. Include all mathematical reasoning and/or calculation steps in your answers. You can miss out on marks because little or no working out is shown.
- Use your calculator’s memory properly. For questions and parts that require you to use a numerical result from a previous question or part, it can be very effective if you use the stored number in your calculator rather than your rounded written answer. Make proper use of your calculator’s memory and ensure you store the number after every calculation.
