The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) was left scrambling on Saturday morning after HSC students’ preliminary results were mistakenly published on its website.
Between 8am and 10am on Saturday, a breach of the website allowed students to access a set of preliminary results for each course, which weren’t due to be released until Thursday 15 December.
Saturday’s breach marks the second consecutive year HSC results have accidentally been released ahead of schedule.
“For a short period this morning, some students were able to access a preliminary set of 2022 HSC Results,” NESA said in a statement.
“NESA is investigating the cause of the issue and sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused. Final HSC results will be released this Thursday.”
