Subjects in Year 11 & 12 are generally studied over 4 semesters
and the Levels of Achievement recorded on the Queensland Certificate
of Education are based on student performance during the two years.
Subjects are of two kinds: Authority subjects and Authority-registered subjects.
AUTHORITY SUBJECTS are those for which the School's work programs are accredited by the Queensland Studies Authority (QSA) and are based on approved syllabuses. These subjects count towards a student's Overall Position (OP).
AUTHORITY-REGISTERED SUBJECTS are those other than Authority subjects, for which the Authority has accredited the School's study plans. These subjects do not count towards an Overall Position (OP) but may count towards a Rank for tertiary entrance.
SENIOR PATHWAY OPTIONS
The selection of senior subjects is an important and critical process involving the student, parents and teaching staff. Careful selection of subjects expands future opportunities for a student's academic and vocational future. Pathway options include OP and rank courses, traineeships and apprenticeships which provide students with entry to university, TAFE, private training organisations and the work force.
