3 Choices, Choices

4  To satisfy the requirements of the Preliminary HSC you will need:  12 units in total (usually 6 courses).  You must have an English course.  You must have 2 other Board Developed Courses (With an HSC examination).

5  English Standard (2 unit)  PD/H/PE (2 Unit)  Business Studies (2 unit)  General Mathematics (2 Unit)  Senior Science (2 Unit)  Food Technology (2 unit)  12 Units in total  Complications start with extension courses

6  The HSC was designed over 40 years ago with the sole purpose of preparing students for university study.  Self-discipline, organisation, persistence, resilience and hard-work are still the keys to success.

7  Band 6: mark above 90% in a course  Band 5: mark above 80% in a course  Band 4: mark above 70% in a course  Band 3: mark above 60% in a course  Band 2: mark above 50% in a course  Band 1: mark below 50%  The number of band 6 and band 5 results varies greatly between courses.  Your mark is an average of school assessment and examination mark.

8  The measure used by universities for entry to courses.  Normally reflects the demand for the course- high demand usually means high ATAR  Ranges from 0 to  Strict rules for course selection-10 units of Board Developed Courses.

9  Some courses attract a high standard of candidates every year. The universities “weight” these courses more heavily.  The most heavily “weighted” courses are Extension 1 and 2 Mathematics, Advanced and Extension 1 and 2 English, Physics, Chemistry and Economics (2013 UAC Guide).

10  More than 90 ATAR-Usually 2 Band 6 results with strong Band 5 results in most other courses.  More than 80 ATAR- Usually a Band 6 result and/or solid Band 5 results in most courses.  More than 70 ATAR-1 or 2 Band 5 results with strong Band 4 results in other courses.  Average ATAR in NSW is 68.05

11  HSC results that include Band 3 results and lower will lead to a very low ATAR.  Example, A student who achieves a Band 4 result, 3 Band 3 results and a Band 2 result will likely receive an ATAR of under 40.

12  Business Services, Primary Industries, Information Technology, Hospitality, Construction, Entertainment, Retail Services.  OR TAFE delivered VET

13  Using the forms tonight, submit your dream subject mix!

14  Timetabling software generates the “best fit” for the majority of students.  This software will generate which courses will run at the same time. These are called subject lines.  Then you choose all over again!

16  What if most of my choices don’t match the grid?  When are my study periods?  What do I need to do if I change my mind?  Can I change my mind next year?

17  Once decisions are made, a team including Ms Cornish, Mrs Payne and other staff will check your choices. 10L pilot program will continue.
