The Higher School Certificate (HSC) was a United Kingdom educational attainment standard qualification, established in 1918 by the Secondary Schools Examination Council (SSEC). The Higher School Certificate Examination (HSCE) was usually taken at age 18, or two years after the School Certificate. It was abolished in 1951 following the introduction of A-levels.[1]
