after 13 years and some 100,000 kilometers of me driving to and from school everyday, today marked the beginning of the Higher School Certificate.
There are nearly 68,000 HSC students this year, the largest ever to complete Year 12 in New South Wales.
The first English exam will be held tomorrow and the last HSC paper is set down for November 13. Students (Rachel amongst them) will have to wait until December 17 to receive their results and then until early January for the first rounds of University offers.
Exciting times are ahead.
