Year 12 English

Year 12 English is divided into three courses, with students continuing on with the same course after the completion of their Preliminary study. Students wishing to receive an ATAR study either the Advanced or Standard English courses. These courses comprise of an Area of Study, Discovery, and three electives Distinctively Visual, A Close Study and Texts and Society. Students that do not need an ATAR can choose English Studies, which is a Non-ATAR course, where students will study a mandatory module, We Are Australian and three elective modules. Furthermore, Year 12 students can choose to study Extension English 2, a one unit course for those students that want to further their study of English. Students choosing to do Extension 2 must have completed Extension 1 in their preliminary years.
