Senior Course Selection 2018

Parents are required to help their children choose the courses they would like to study next year. The deadline for course selection is Wednesday, 23 August, 2017.

Pre-requisites for entry to a course
Entry to a course is subject to your child meeting the pre-requisites for entry to that course. Pre-requisites are detailed in the Academic Guide

At this stage pre-requisites may not be met but will come into consideration once students have had an opportunity to achieve them. Select your child’s courses as though the pre-requisites have been met.

The number of courses to be selected

  • Year 13 students for 2018 choose 5 courses
  • Year 12 students for 2018 choose English and any other 5 courses
  • Year 11 students for 2018 choose an English course, a Mathematics course, a Science course and any other 3 courses.

If your son/daughter does not meet the pre-requisites for entry to a course a change in selection may be required.

Preparation for entering selected courses
You should use the Academic Guide and the Block Line Course Selection Sheet together. The Block Line sheet enables your child to select their courses so that they fit within the school timetable.
