Record of School Achievement (RoSA)

The RoSA is the new credential for students who leave school after Year 10 and before they receive their Higher School Certificate (HSC). To qualify for the award of the RoSA a student must:

  1. Satisfactorily complete the minimum number and pattern of courses required by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA)
  2. Meet all the mandatory study requirements for Years 7 to 10 in each Key Learning Area
  3. Have a satisfactory record of attendance and application

The RoSA is designed to record and credential all secondary school students’ academic results up until the HSC. If a student leaves school before completing all courses in Year 12, their RoSA will record the courses they commenced and any grades attained. This measure acknowledges the fact that many students begin senior secondary study but leave school for employment or other training opportunities before receiving their HSC.
