The Higher School Certificate, or HSC, was the credential awarded to secondary school students who successfully completed senior high school level studies (years 11 and 12 or equivalent) in the state of Victoria, Australia. In 1987, there was trial of its successor, the Victorian Certificate of Education,[1] and until 1992, it was completely replaced.[2] It is unrelated to the Higher School Certificate awarded in New South Wales. Every state and territory in Australia has a different education system, and consequently a different leaving credential.
