REQUIREMENTS FOR THE AWARD OF THE HSCAll courses offered for the Higher School Certificate have a unit value.Subjects may have a value of 1 unit (extension courses) or 2 units (Mostcourses).Each unit involves class time of approximately 2 hours per week (60 hours peryear). In the HSC, each unit has a value of 50 marks. Therefore, a 2 unitcourse has a value of 100 marks.2 units 4 hours per week (approximately 120 hours per year) 100marksIf you wish to be awarded the HSC:1. You must study a minimum of 12 units in the Year 11 course and aminimum of 10 units in the Year 12 course. Both the Year 11 course andthe Year 12 course must include the following:a.b.c.d.at least 6 units from Board Developed Courses including at least2 units of a Board Developed Course in Englishat least three courses of 2 units value or greaterat least four subjectsat most 6 units of courses in Science can contribute to HigherSchool Certificate eligibility2. You must complete any practical, oral or project work required forspecific courses and the assessment requirements for each course3. You must have sat for and made a serious attempt in all course assessmenttasks4. Work placement is a mandatory requirement for some courses.WHAT TYPES OF COURSES CAN BE SELECTEDThere are different types of courses that can be selected in Years 11 and 12. Board Developed Courses - Category A or BThe Board of Studies develops these courses. For each course the followinginformation is available the course objectives, structure, contents and outcomesspecific course requirementsassessment requirementsthe performance scale (except for Vocational Education and Training Courses).All students entered in the state for the HSC who are studying Board Developed Courses(BDC) follow these syllabuses. These courses are examined externally at the end of theYear 12 course and can count towards the calculation of the Australian TertiaryAdmission Rank (ATAR).However, only one Category B subject can be counted towards your 10 ‘best’ HSC unitsthat are used to calculate your ATAR.

Board Endorsed CoursesThere are two types of Board Endorsed Courses - Content Endorsed Courses and SchoolDesigned Courses.1. Content Endorsed Courses (CEC) have syllabuses endorsed by the Board of Studiesto cater for areas of special interest not covered in the Board Developed Courses.2. Schools may also design courses to meet student needs. The Board of Studies mustapprove these courses. Once approval is granted, schools offer selected courses tosenior students as part of the Higher School Certificate.There is no external examination for any Content Endorsed Course or School DesignedCourse, but all Board Endorsed Courses count towards the Higher School Certificate andappear on the Record of Achievement. Board Endorsed Courses do not count in thecalculation of the ATAR.ATAR RULESThe Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is the primary criterion for entryinto most undergraduate-entry university programs in Australia.The ATAR will be based on the best ten units in Board Developed Year 12 courses, subject tothe following restrictions:a)b)at least two units of Board Developed English must be included.at most two units of Category B subjects may be included.Vocational Education and Training (VET) Courses- either Board Developed or Board EndorsedVocational Education and Training (VET) courses are offered as part of the Higher SchoolCertificate. They enable students to study courses, which are relevant to industry needs and haveclear links to post-school destinations.These courses allow students to gain both Higher School Certificate qualifications andaccreditation with industry and the workplace as part of the Australian Qualifications Framework(AQF). The national framework is recognised across Australia and helps students to move easilybetween the various education and training sectors and employment.Some of these courses have a specific workplace component and a minimum number of hoursstudents spend in the workplace or a simulated workplace at school. Students receive specialdocumentation showing the competencies gained. Some of these courses will be delivered byschools, while others will be delivered by TAFE or other providers.SCHOOL BASED APPRENTICESHIPS AND TRAINEESHIPS - SBATSSchool based apprenticeships and traineeships provide students with the opportunity to attain anationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification as well as theirHigher School Certificate (HSC) and gain valuable work skills and experience through paidemployment.
