There are four opportunities to change subjects during the years of Senior School.
Students will not be permitted to change classes if two or more classes exist in the same subject.
For example, there are multiple classes of English taught at the same time, once students are allocated to a particular class with a designated teacher, they are not permitted to change classes.
Students may change subjects within the first six weeks of Year 11. Once this deadline has passed, students are committed to completing Unit 1 (that is, Semester One, Year 11). For students enrolled in an ATAR course, this includes completing the Semester One exam.
The next opportunity for students to change courses is in the week after the Semester One exam/work experience period. In particular, this opportunity will allow students challenged by ATAR courses to move to General courses. Once this deadline has passed, students are committed to their chosen program of study for the duration of the year including the end of year exams.
During Term 4 in Year 11, students choose subjects for Year 12. They are able to make changes based on the availability of subjects and class sizes. The grid from Year 11 to Year 12 does not change.
Students may change subjects within the first six weeks of Year 12. Once this deadline has passed, students are committed to completing the entire year, as students only receive credit for completing a pair of units in Year 12. For students enrolled in an ATAR course, they must complete the Semester One, Semester Two and WACE exams.
