Relationship between subjects in the Junior and Senior secondary school

 

Some Year 11 subjects cannot be attempted without an appropriate subject background in the Junior Secondary school. In other subjects, appropriate studies to a Junior Secondary school level are highly recommended.

However, there are some Year 11 subjects that have associations with Junior Secondary school level subjects, but you should be able to begin these subjects at Year 11 level without previous study and not be seriously disadvantaged. 

The relationship between subjects studied in the Junior Secondary and Senior years is shown below. An asterix (*) indicates that these subjects do not contribute to an OP Score but may contribute to Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications in the form of a Certificate I and/or Certificate II at the end of Year 12.
