Course Scale of Achievement


Main Opportunities in new Courses of Study

  • Removal of dual system

  • Changes in WACE and University entrance criteria

  • Changes in subject/course selections

  • Specialist opportunities

  • Flexibility in unit combinations

  • Career & Enterprise CoS


Removal of Dual System

  • Currently 33 TEE subjects; of which 12 are LOTE.

  • About 300 other wholly school-assessed or non-TEE subjects.

  • Dual system – made counselling difficult and ‘locked’ students in very early.

  • Now ALL 50 CoS will count equally towards Uni entry and TAFE entry.


Key changes in Uni Entry

  • Most entrance criteria remain similar – best four subjects/courses, TER, pre-requisites, unacceptable pairings, ELC, 50:50 split .

  • List 1 and List 2 removed

  • WACE required – breadth requirements

  • Can accumulate scores over 5 or more years


Key Changes to WACE

  • Much is the same – complete 20 units; min level 4; ELC

  • Now has some breadth requirements – coverage of OLOs; outcomes from 5 CoS; three 2-unit combinations.

  • Removal of ‘C’ average over Year 11 and 12

  • Introduction of Curriculum Council Endorsed Units – up to 8 of 20 units


Possible counselling implications of these changes

  • Schools could implement 5/5 grid – “liberated” by no List 1 and 2; no 4 x ‘C’ in Year 12.

  • Movement away from “traditional TEE” CoS

  • Possible increase in Health and PE and Technology learning areas; and decrease in ………


Specialist Opportunities

  • Health Studies – Enrolled Nursing; Aged Care; Child Care

  • Business Management and Enterprise – links to Uni courses; Business etc at TAFE

  • Media Production & Analysis – Film and TV; Multimedia Qualifications

  • Applied Info Technology – Cert II and possibly parts of Cert IV in IT

  • Others?


Curriculum CouncilEndorsed Units

  • “Formal” – TAFE UoCs; University Studies; Structured Workplace Learning; Vendor Programs

  • “Less formal” – Cadets; Calm Bushrangers; D of E; Structured Courses; Sports Coaching; Christian Service & Retreats; Community Service; Industry programs etc

Possible groups of students

Group 1

Higher TER students typically TER 75 + /57% + best 4

Group 2

Middle/marginal TER typically TER 55 to 75 / about 43% - 57% best 4.

Very high achieving WSA students – sound A/high B grades.

Group 3

Lower achieving students in WSA VET students


Probable Achievement Across Levels

Group 1:Higher TER students typically TER 75 + / 57% + best 4

Group 2:Middle/marginal TER typically TER 55 to 75/about 43% - 57% best 4. Very high achieving WSA students - Sound A/high B grades.

Counselling & Flexibility in Units

  • Complete some in year 10; WACE over 3 years

  • Combined 11 and 12 classes

  • Single units – or pairs

  • Focus on 4/5 courses – or units from many courses

  • One unit over whole year

  • Repeating units


Counselling Possibilities with Endorsed Units
