Mathspace has sample papers for the HSC, VCE, WACE, SACE and OLNA. Once your students start working on one of the sample papers, Mathspace will send you Diagnostic Reports which will provide you with:

  • Data insights: See how individual students and the class is tracking, as well as specific topics they may still need to work on.
  • Personalised task recommendations: Our diagnostic report can automatically identify topic areas that your class should revise. You can easily set these as revision tasks with one click from the report.
