HSC True Reward

Your child is so much more than their ATAR.

 At Western, we know the HSC can be a stressful time for students and their parents. Our HSC True Reward Early Offer Program recognises your child’s strongest skills in subjects that are relevant to the specific degree they want to do. With this program, students can receive an offer based on their HSC subject results before the ATAR is even released!
