HSC website breach leaves students getting results early

Year 12 graduates anxiously waiting for their HSC results were shocked to learn some students could access their marks after they were released early in a devastating website breach.

Students were able to access their final results on the NSW Education Standards Authority website on Saturday after the website was reportedly breached.

The final results were not set to be released until next Thursday but some students found they were able to see their marks early on Saturday morning.

A spokeswoman for the authority in charge of the HSC told NCA NewsWire on Saturday investigations were under way as to how the breach occurred.

“For a short period this morning, some students were able to access a preliminary set of 2022 HSC results,” the spokeswoman told NCA NewsWire.

“NESA is investigating the cause of the issue and sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused.

“Final HSC results will be released this Thursday.”

Many of the affected students took to social media to question whether the results were legitimate.

“Are the leaked HSC results real? Thanks NESA,” one student questioned on Facebook.

“We broke the NESA website, good job guys,” another wrote.

Hordes of other graduates are now complaining they missed out on seeing their results early after the website was shut down. One person griped they missed the opportunity because they “slept in”.

It might have been better than seeing the results, which left student “underwhelmed” and another experiencing “a breakdown”.

“(The link) worked and I would like to sue for trauma,” one student wrote online.

Students are now reporting they can’t log into their portals to see any information at all.

The HSC class of 2022 has taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the leak.

“Nah but (for real) NESA had one job,” one student criticised.

More to come.
