Planning Your Year 11 Program
Year 11 marks the beginning of a student’s full VCE or VCAL program. Students who included a year 11, VCE, VCAL or VET unit as part of their year 10 program, have the opportunity to include the corresponding year 12 units in their year 11 program. In order to make a selection, you should read through the subject descriptions carefully and discuss the various possibilities with career advisors, parents, teachers and other students. Success is more likely to occur if you enjoy what you are doing. Take advantage of the course counselling sessions to seek clarification, information and ask questions. Make the most of these years and take part in as many activities as possible to enrich your time at the College. All year 11 students are expected to do six studies each semester.
To fulfill the requirements of the VCE you must
- Complete at least 16 units
- Include three units from the English group (Eng/Lit/Eng Lang/ESL)
