Year 11

This year, students start preparing for Year 12, so it's important your child settles into a good routine that balances study commitments and life outside of school.

Preparing for Year 12

The subjects studied in Year 11 are preliminary subjects for Year 12 study and exams in Year 12.

Minimum Standards

There is a minimum standard of literacy and numeracy in order to receive the Higher School Certificate (HSC) from 2020. The tests will be available to take at school and you will receive more information when the times comes. Sample questions and answers are available online, as well as practice tests and advice from students. You do not need to sit the reading, writing or numeracy online tests if you achieved Band 8 or above in the respective Year 9 NAPLAN tests.

Some student with disabilities will be eligible for extra provisions for the online tests, or an exemption. Students sitting the HSC in 2019 do not need to take these tests or meet these minimum standards.

See the factsheet for more information, or contact Mrs Rudder.
