Record of Student Achievement (RoSA)

The Record of School Achievement (RoSA) is a Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards NSW (BOSTES) credential, given to students who leave school after Year 10 and before they receive their Higher School Certificate (HSC). The RoSA will record all courses that a student has completed (with a grade) as well as courses that a student may be enrolled in but has not yet completed (without a grade) at the date of leaving school.

The grade that is recorded on the RoSA is determined by student performance in assessment tasks, as detailed in the Assessment Schedule, using the RoSA Common Grade Scale A – E. The RoSA grade will be issued by the BOSTES to students when they indicate they are leaving school.

More information can be found at RoSA
