Year 11/12 Subject Selections Process
1. Initial Selections (Round 1)

Students make initial course selections during Week 10 of Term 2 (see Important Dates below). Selections are done electronically by logging on to a website and selecting courses from a drop-down menu. The range of courses available to each student is based on their Semester 1 results, OLNA results (in relation to English and Maths levels) and the prerequisites for each course. 

Students must make their initial selections based on those options available. They can amend their choices in Term 3.

Staffing planning is based on these initial selections, hence the relatively early initial selections.

2. Final Selections

Final selections are made in Week 7 of Term 3 (7 – 11 September). Gridlines are constructed based on these selections and after this date, subject changes can only be made according to those gridlines.

3. Application for extension to meet course prerequisites

Students who would like to study specific ATAR courses, but have not met the prerequisites, may apply to the relevant Head of Learning Area (HOLA) for an extension to meet course prerequisites. HOLAs will set specific conditions and time frames for the prerequisites to be met.
