Year 12

Subjects

Year 12 Students must be Studying at least 2units of English (Advanced, Standard or studies) 

All other subjects are continued from Year 11. There is the possibly to change some subjects or to drop to 10 units of study. This decision will need to be made in consolation with your Year advisor, Stage 6 Deputy Principal and Head Teacher of administration.

Homework & Study

Homework & Study is vital for success in the Year 12. The amount of required time will be dependant of your student’s pattern of study (ATAR or Non ATAR). 

It is not unusually for teachers to set regular homework, with the expectation that will also be revising classroom content. In the lead up to examinations, it is not unreasonable for students to be doing additional study.

Examinations and Assessments

All subjects have Assessment tasks. These are a course requirement and must be completed by their due date. Most subjects have 4 to 5 tasks, which means most student will have an assessment task for each subject due each term.

Details about CHHS Assessment task policies and procedures can be found in the Year 12 Assessment Guide 2019. All student have been given a copy of this and a addional copy can be made available on request.  An assessment task timeline is produced at the start of each term and distributed to student through the schools learning edge program. Most subjects will have a Year 12 Trial examination these are held in weeks 3 and 4 of term 3

Excursion

While there are, no annual excursion set for Year 12 it is not uncommon for there to be subject specific excursions. There are usually excursions to university open days but the University, which we visit changes due to what is available to the school and student interest.  The day before graduation Year 12 have a Skirmish excursion. 

Year 12 support

A range of online resources is available to help students and parents understand Year 12 and prepare for assessment and examinations.

Year 12 students can set up their personal profile on NSW students online and access support materials including the final exam timetable and answers to frequently asked questions about Year 12.

Students can prepare for the final exams by looking at past HSC exam papers.
