WACE 2015 BREADTH AND DEPTH REQUIREMENT Complete a minimum of 20 course units or the equivalent. The 20 course units must include at least: - four course units from English or Lit (at least 2 units must be completed in Year 12) - one pair of course units from each of List A (arts/languages/social sciences) and List B (maths/science/technology) in Year 12.
WACE 2015 ACHIEVEMENT STANDARD REQUIREMENT Achieve a C grade average or better across 16 course units. At least 8 of these units must come from Year 12. Endorsed programs and/or VET credit transfer, can reduce the required number of course units by up to 6 units.
WACE 2015 ENGLISH LANGUAGE COMPETENCE REQUIREMENT Achieve the standard for English language competence –a C grade or better in any Stage 1 or higher English unit or work sample scenario. “League tables” are formed on one result over 75. Better indicator is arguably the average ATAR.
Selecting for TAFEWA Entrance To maximise entry prospects to TAFEWA (Training WA), particularly competitive courses, students should: Consider VET studies at school, particularly those which lead to a completed credential. Undertake workplace learning; keep records of any part time work undertaken. Maximise grades in school studies. TAFEWA to university transfer – a real option!
ATAR Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) This rank forms the basis for admission to university Derived from the Tertiary Entrance Aggregate (TEA) – score out of 400 ATAR out of 100 – for example ATAR of 75.00 indicates equal to or better than 75% of the WA students at school leaving age Course results for these subjects are generated by: – 50% school score (moderated and standardised) – 50% exam score (standardised)
