HOW DO WE GET THERE SUCCESSFULLY???
Some sources that offer curriculum support services for senior secondary students:
sets standards of student achievement and for the assessment and certification of student achievement according to those standards.
processing of applications for admission to undergraduate courses at the public WA Universities.
the “Schools” tab offers a range of support services for parents/guardians and students.
the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) website and WACE exam papers from previous years.
