13 SACE Credits

14 Individual circumstances

15 Students with a disability The SACE Board offers modified subjects at Stage 1 and Stage 2 for students with identified intellectual disabilities A student studying a modified subject will gain credits towards the SACE but not a grade for the subject; instead successful achievement is recorded as ‘Completed’ Any modified subjects a student has studied will be listed on their SACE certificate

16 Special Provisions Special provisions are available if a student has an illness, disability or unforeseen circumstance which significantly impacts their ability to participate in an assessment If a student applies for special provisions they need to provide evidence of how this impacts their ability to access assessment conditions More information is on the SACE website under Students and Families > Special Provisions

17 Further study

18 The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) A measure of a student’s overall achievement in the SACE compared with other students Used by universities in the selection of school leavers for a place in university courses Ranges from 0 to An ATAR is calculated from the aggregate of SACE subject results

19 ATAR Eligibility Qualify for the SACE Comply with the rules regarding precluded combinations Comply with the rules regarding counting restrictions Complete at least 90 credits of study in Tertiary Admissions Subjects (TAS) and Recognised Subjects at Stage 2 in a maximum of 3 attempts Of the 90 credits of study a minimum of 60 credits of study must be from 20 credit Tertiary Admissions Subjects(TAS) and a maximum of 20 credits can be Recognised Studies

20 TAFE Selection Score A TAFE selection score can be used for entrance to higher courses offered through TafeSA The TAFE selection score is calculated directly form the best 60 credits of Stage 2 study.
