Years 11 and 12 are two of the most important years of your education. They are the last steps of your schooling life but the first steps into your future career pathway. Welcome Years 11 and 12 are two of the most important years of your education. They are the last steps of your schooling life but the first steps into your future career pathway. As young Tasmanians you will play an important role in the future of our state because when you enter the workforce you will be helping to build our state and our economy. The 2018 Student Guide for Years 11 and 12 provides you with the information you need to choose the best program of study. Many of you will already know what career you are interested in, some others won’t. The good news is that our schools offer you many options. You can either study a broad range of subjects so that you can keep your options open whilst you make further decisions, or you can tailor your learning to achieve particular career or pathway requirements. You can access Years 11 and 12 through colleges and most high or district schools. We want you to have every opportunity to study what you enjoy most. In the Guide you will find information on subjects that support pathways in to further study, vocational training or prepare you to move into the workplace. As you think about your choices it is important to remember that most employers and universities are now looking for evidence that you have completed the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE). So before you make any decisions, do some research; look at the information you have gathered through My Education, use the information in the Guide, and talk with your teachers, parents or carers, or people in your career area of interest. As you complete Year 12 you will not only have become an adult but will have also reached a significant milestone in your journey as a lifelong learner. I wish you well in your studies for 2018 and beyond. Jenny Gale Secretary 2018 STUDENT GUIDE FOR YEARS 11 AND 12 4

In Tasmania, it is the responsibility of the University of Tasmania More detailed information is available on the TASC website to determine what subjects can be counted towards your www.tasc.tas.gov.au ATAR. To be eligible for an ATAR the University of Tasmania has determined that students must also achieve a TCE. Entry requirements to university vary by course and by university. Generally, the higher your ATAR, the better your chances are of being accepted into your preferred course. That is why the personalised learning support you will receive at school is so important. It will help you to maximise your ATAR. TASC will advise eligible students of their TE score and ATAR in late December.
