History Extension


This is a significant part of the course and may be considered a HSC major work. 70% of the students’ internal assessment mark is allocated to the project.

According to the NESA syllabus:

“The essay should include:

an argument in response to a precise question with evidence in support, the sources of which are acknowledged. It will be in written form and may be accompanied by appropriate graphic texts only as appendices (apart from short explanatory captions). The essay must not exceed 2500 words.”

Three other parts are also required to be submitted: a proposal for the essay; a process log book and an annotated bibliography.

The 2022 class of 13 have chosen a wide variety of historiographical topics across historical periods. Their originality, creativity and willingness to think outside the box have all resulted in an excellent set of projects of which they can be very proud.
