English Studies (Non-ATAR)

English Studies addresses the needs of a specific group of students who wish to complete and be awarded a Higher School Certificate but who are seeking an alternative to the current Standard English course.

English Studies is designed to support students in developing proficiency in English to enhance their personal, social and vocational lives. It offers a comprehensive language experience that is reflected in the modes of reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing and representing.

The course contributes to the required Preliminary pattern of study of 12 units and HSC pattern of study of at least 10 units.

The course is not examined externally. Results in the course are not eligible for inclusion in the calculation of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).

Students seeking an ATAR and/or who particularly enjoy studying texts and literature can choose between.
