Every five years, BOSTES determines new course prescriptions for each of the nine Extension courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Modern Greek and Spanish and the four Background Speaker courses in Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese and Korean.
Texts are drawn from those proposed by languages teachers.In order to facilitate the selection of texts required for the 2019 HSC, a survey is available on the BOSTES website for the nomination and review of texts. Teachers are invited to nominate texts and complete a brief survey. The survey is based on the BOSTES selection criteria of appropriateness, suitability and availability.A survey link is on the page for each HSC language syllabus for teachers to submit their nominations for new prescription texts.It can now be found by going to: http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/syllabus_hsc and then clicking on the relevant Extension or
Background Speaker course.
The survey will remain open until May 2015.
