Our goal For students to leave WSC with choices ATAR of 55+ and/or at least a Cert. II WACE What is the WACE? Western Australian Certificate of Education

Minimum level of acceptable achievement BREADTH AND DEPTH Complete a minimum of 20 course units or the equivalent The 20 course units must include at least: four course units from English, Literature and/or English as an Additional

Language or Dialect, studied during Year 11 and 12. one pair of course units from each of List A (arts/languages/ social sciences) and List B (mathematics/science/technology) completed in Year 12. NOTE Repeated units can only be counted once towards meeting graduation requirements English units cannot be repeated and students must complete four units The List A/List B requirement is waived if 5 or more VET unit equivalents are completed in Year 12

ACHIEVEMENT STANDARD Achieve a C grade average or better across the best 16 course units of which at least eight must be completed in Year 12. VET credit transfer can reduce the required number of course units by up to six units. E.g. Cert. II Business = 6 unit equivalents = C grade average

calculated over 10 course units (6 in Year 12) Cert. II Animal Studies = 2 unit equivalents = C grade average calculated over 14 course units (8 in Year 12) English Language Competence Achieve a C grade or better in any Stage 1 or higher unit from English, Literature or EALD For students who have not achieved a C grade in one of their English/Literature course units, English competence

can be demonstrated through work samples. Note English Language Competence for WACE is different to that required for university entrance WACE - 2015 Important Considerations External exams for Stage 3 are compulsory unless students qualify for and are granted exemption Students electing not to sit Stage 2 examinations

must apply for exemption There is a significant difference between the achievement standard required for WACE and that required for uni and some TAFE courses. Student Pathways ATAR STP Employment

Supporting Students

Time expectations Home study environment Paid work Sporting commitments Getting work experience TAFE ready Facebook/mobile Conflicting goals Career Expos/Uni open days

Supporting students to set clear goals Students who are able to articulate goals are more likely to be successful What is it that they want to achieve This semester? This year? Over the next two years? Make them challenging and achievable

E.g. I want to earn at least a B in every course in Semester 1 I want to be ranked in the top 10 students in Psychology I want to hand in every assignment on time Reality check What is standing in the way of achieving these goals?

Procrastination Conflicting priorities Lacking study skills Unwillingness to do what is necessary to achieve the goals Distraction If you focus on the process the outcome will take care of

itself. What do they have to do to make them happen?

Prioritise Study space Facebook/mobile phone Get organised Work with teachers Use class time effectively
