2018 HSC Mathematics Results

Again, our boys achieved strong results in the 2018 HSC Mathematics courses. 

In the Mathematics Extension 2 course, 83% of our students have achieved a Notional Band 6, with the rest achieving Notional Band 5. Cameron Heydeman ranked first in this course, gaining 91 as his HSC mark, followed closely by Longkai Li with a mark of 90. These are outstanding results for the fourth year that Mathematics Extension 2 course has been offered at Blacktown Boys' High School. 

In the Mathematics Extension 1 course, 75% of the students have achieved the top two bands. Cameron Heydeman ranked first in this course, gaining 94 as his HSC mark. Longkai Li came second with a HSC mark of 93, followed closely by Vaibhav Bhandari with a HSC mark of 90.

In the Mathematics 2 unit course, 32% of the students have achieved the top two bands. Utkarsh Sharma ranked first in this course with a HSC mark of 88. Nitya came second with a HSC mark of 87.

In the Mathematics General 2 course, Nicholas Wright ranked first in this course, gaining 95 as his HSC mark. 

We are extremely proud of all of our students whose achievements are the direct result of their hard work, dedication and determination throughout the whole course. We expect to see these fantastic results to continue with our Year 12 cohort for the 2019 HSC.
