Completing a program of study in Years 11 and 12 provides you with the opportunity to achieve the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) or an equivalent qualification which will help your future employment, training and study opportunities.
To achieve the TCE you must meet five standards. Use the TCE course planner to understand the credit points you can receive and speak with your school to plan a program of study to achieve all five standards.
- For eligible Year 11 and 12 students, the University of Tasmania’s University Connections Program and the High Achiever Program can also contribute towards the TCE.
- Students in Tasmanian Government schools can find more information in the 2019 Student Guide for Years 11 and 12.
- Students studying in non-government schools should contact their chosen senior secondary school directly for more information.
- The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is used by Australian universities to allocate places to students.
Studying languages in Years 11 and 12
TASC Foundation (level 2) and Level 3 courses are available for Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian and Japanese. Beyond these courses, access to study other languages is available to Tasmanian senior secondary students through the Collaborative Curriculum and Assessment Framework for Languages (CCAFL).
Online learning programs for Years 11 and 12
Tasmanian Government colleges and extension schools have access to a range of courses delivered through online learning programs for Years 11 and 12. These programs are designed for students who cannot enrol in their chosen courses at their local college or high school, or are unable to attend face-to-face classes for health or distance reasons.
