Final Subject Selections for Year 11 students, 2017
Students/families will be sent an email next week that will give them an access code to enter their final selections for 2017.
Students will then choose their first 12-13 units in preferential order and six units of reserve subjects that may be used if their first preferences cannot be accommodated. Students may not receive their preferred subjects if classes are full or if students do not meet prerequisite requirements (eg. Languages or Extension English/Maths). First preferences for subjects will be given to students who had initially chosen that subject in the initial survey conducted early in Term 3.
Please note that the lines that are published below have been based on the best solution for the students as a whole and, whilst it may not suit all students, no subjects will be moved from the lines published below.
Important notes to remember
Each 2 Unit subject equates to 10 periods of face-to-face teaching per two week cycle. The Extension subjects in all areas are 1 Unit subjects and equate to 5 periods per cycle.
Classes in English Advanced, Mathematics and General Mathematics will be streamed on academic ability.
Students are reminded that only one VET subject is able to contribute towards an ATAR.
Students and families will receive an email confirming their classes for 2017 during the second half of Term 4.
Mrs Wark will notify parents if she believes that the subjects chosen do not suit their child..
Students in Year 12 are must keep studying a subject that they have been studying in Year 11 until the end of Week 4 of Term 4, 2016.
Mr Taylor will be able to assist families in making the right decisions and the paperwork is only available through him. Appointments with him can be made by sending him an email at [email protected] .
The Yr 12 Extension subjects are allocated 5 periods/fortnight but these lessons may occur before or after school, during lunch or within the timetable if all students are available. Places in these classes are dependent on achieving a high standard in the course during Year 11, demonstrated commitment and recommendation by the teacher/Coordinator.
Decisions regarding whether a student should study an additional Extension subject in Year 12 should be made at the end of the Year 11 course.
