Who Makes HSC Apps?
Each subject app has been created by a group of highly experienced teachers who are experts in their areas. Each of the creators is an experienced HSC marker and has an intimate knowledge of their subject area. Creators are fully up on the examination and syllabus requirements of the HSC. Several of the creators are textbook writers and study day presenters.
Why Choose HSC Apps?
Unlike some other study apps out there, which merely take flat textbook pages and put them on a screen, HSC Apps is designed purposely for the iPhone giving you a fully interactive study experience.
And, because HSC Apps are created by teachers, for students, we know that not every school studies the same topics for each subject. Unlike some other study apps and studyguides which only give you the ‘most popular’ topics (half of which you probably aren’t even doing) HSC Apps give you the flexibility to customise the questions in your app so you only pay for the topics you actually study.
Designed as a quiz-style game, HSC Apps are fun way to revise subjects and test yourself. Save your scores to test yourself and track how you’re improving, and bookmark any questions you’re not sure about so you know what you need to study up on.

How HSC Apps Work
HSC Apps provide a separate ‘question pack’ for each topic you are studying within a subject. Each question pack contains approximately 150 individual questions on that topic.
When you download the app, it comes pre-loaded with the question pack for the core topic of that subject - the one that everyone studies.
You can then browse through the other topics available to download only the other question packs that you are studying.
