This is not enough for students who will be competing against 80,000 students across the state, some of whom take study seriously. How many hours should students devote to study each week? Year 10 2 hours per subject per week. 6 subjects x 2 hrs = 12 hours.

Year 11 3 hours per subject per week. 5 subjects x 3 hrs = 15 hours. 6 subjects x 2 hrs = 18 hours. Year 12 4 hours per subject per week. 5 subjects x 4 hrs = 20 hours. 6 subjects x 4 hrs = 24 hours. Study Time = outside the classroom 5 subjects x 7 periods x 63 minutes = 2,205 minutes or 36 hours and 45 minutes per fortnight = 18 hours 20 minutes per week. Add 17 hours study time = a 35 hour week. Add 20 hours study time = a 38 hour week. Add 24 hours study time = a 42 hour week.

6 subjects x 7 periods x 63 minutes = 2,646 minutes or 44 hrs and 6 minutes per fortnight = 22 hours per week. Add 17 hours study time = a 39 hour week. Add 20 hours study time = a 42 hour week.

Abide by the due time/date Students must complete and submit each task at the time designated on the assessment task notification. e.g. All students must submit a hard copy of their response to their

classroom teacher at the beginning of period 2 on 3rd June 2019. Not shoved under the staffroom door (time unknown) Not handed to some unknown member of staff Not emailed before midnight on 3rd June 2019. If it is submitted in period 3 on 3rd June 2019 = 0% for the task. Appealing a zero determination Each appeal is considered on its merits, merits determined largely by the documentation attached to the appeal form. These are not grounds for appeal:

I left it at home. (be organised) Its in the back of dads car. (be organised) I wasnt at home last night. (be organised) My printer ran out of ink/paper. (hand write it!) I will be on a family holiday. Booked it ages ago. (Submit it before you go. We notified you of the due date ages ago (in February). Youve had months to organise your submission.) I was sick, but I dont have a doctors certificate. (A phone call or note from mum/dad wont do. You must append a doctors certificate.)

Grounds for Appeal Under normal circumstances these grounds for appeal would be upheld: I was sick and have a doctors certificate for the due date. I was involved in misadventure (accident/natural disaster) last night. Heres my evidence. Death in the family. I have attached the funeral notice. There was a family emergency. (This will need to be verified.) But each will require supporting documentation. Which Year 11 English course is for me?

English Studies English English Standard Advanced Year 11 English Studies (2 units) Designed to support students who do not want to go to university (ATAR) when they leave school. Would take an apprenticeship or traineeship now if offered.

Are struggling with English. Dont like reading/writing complex texts. Finish Year 10 English with an assessment rank between about 150-217.

Year 11 English Advanced (2 units) The top 40 students in Year 10 English at the end of T4 2018 may opt for this course. (May stretch to 60, but will really have to work hard to catch up. Start now.) Designed to support students who want to maximise their ATAR for entry to university when they leave school. Love reading/writing complex texts. Including

Shakespeare, which wont be the most difficult text they study by any means: e.g. Yeats, Elliot.
