My daughter is entering year 12 soon, and I do not know how many subjects she needs to do.

Some people say you can do 4, some say it must be 5 or 6. So how many subjects do you have to do in year 12?
you need to make at least 10 units *5 subjects* to get a UAI

My daugther has already done 6 subjects in year 11 however, does that mean she only needs to do 4 subjects next year?

6 + 4 = 10 subjects = UAI?
In QLD you have to do 7, with English and Religion (In some schools) being mandatory. And it is fixed to 7 no one can do 5 or 4 or whatnot. Orelse you cannot apply for QTAC or recieve an OP.

That my knowledge of it here in QLD, probably is different down at Vic.

Btw, you can always contact the school. Im quite sure the school would provide you with information on that. If not it must be one slack school.
Six... year twelve subjects?

I'm doing five at the moment (year twelve in Victoria) and that's enough... but I did play it on the safe side and did one year twelve subject in year eleven, just in case I mess one up this year.
It's different everywhere and you can also do international things like IB which are different again.

Generally 5 though
Your best bet is to find out through the school, like ICC said, It's different everywhere
yeah, in NSW you need 10 units for a HSC in year 12 , and 12 units in year 11
i'm doing year 12 and at my school you have to to at least 4 year 12 subjects but you have to pass at least 13 or 16 units(not sure which one it is) in VCE(half a year is 1 unit) i'm only doing 4 subjects and a VET course
I'm schooling in NSW ( HSC ) and it works by Units. I'm in yr 10

For year 11 you need a minimum of 12 units.
For year 12 you need a minimum of 10 units.

Each subject you choose is worth 2 units, and and extension subject is worth and 3 units.

e.g. If you select 4 subjects and 1 extension, you will have 11 units for year 12.
( 4 subjects x 2 units ) + ( 1 subject x 3 units ) = 11 units

Well your daughter can do a minimum of 5 subjects in your 12, She can still choose to do 6 subjects. But her 5 best subjects will count at the end of the year to make up her UAI.
at least 12 units in year 11 but then you can dropp 2 units for year 12. so about 5-6 subjects, minimum of 10 units

In victoria you have to do 6 subjects in year 11, and 5 subjects in year 12. Some schools might allow special consideration (though only under very special circumstances) for a different number.

However, to attain a VCE, you need to complete 16 units (semesters), and pass at least English and 3 other year 12 subjects (both units 3 and 4).

you can do 6 at non religious schools and you only need to do 5 authority subjects to apply to Qtac
4 electives, english, maths, RE
that's what i do in yr11 and is continued to next year.

In Victoria, the minimum is 4 subjects, as Adrian pointed out earlier. your VCE (Victoria Certificate of Education) spans across 2 years. Year 11 and 12.


You need 16 units completed for both years. Each subject has 2 unites. The first half of a year is Unit 1, and the second half is Unit 2.


So In year 11. 4 Subjects = 8 Units.

Year 12. 4 Subjects = Another 8 units

That equals a total of 16 units, which means she would graduate. Doing extra subjects would help boost your enter score by a small amount though.



When enter score is calculated, they take the top 4 subjects you scored in, and the other additional subjects after those 4, help give a bonus to your score for doing 'extra' work.





P.S. It's a stupid and complicated system, but generally every school has a seminar which explains all this mumbo jumbo.

e.g. If you select 4 subjects and 1 extension, you will have 11 units for year 12.

( 4 subjects x 2 units ) + ( 1 subject x 3 units ) = 11 units



I hope you mean that the extension plus the actual subject equal 3 units. Because the extension by itself is only one unit, or if you do extension 2, it's two extra units on top of the subject. ie. I did maths plus extension 2 = 4 units.
You do the same subjects that you did in year 11, but if you have a good reason it is possible to drop a few subjects and get some spare periods. Im in yr 12 and I do 6 subjects.
Just to add to this discussion you also have a unit cap in NSW of 14 units before those course selections will need to be approved; approval is required from both the child's parents and their school.

That said, if you do more than 14 you are clinically insane. I did the 14 in year 11 and it was hectic, then I did 13 in year 12 and it was slightly less hectic but still pretty crazy.
I'm from Vic-in our school you must do 5 VCE 3+4 Units. I think that applied everywhere else aswell.
But because I'm so awesome, in year 11 you do 6 1+2 Units, but I'm going to replace on of those for 3+4 Biology
maybe u should talk to a teacher but im pretty sure its the same followed through from yr11
i did 6, big mistake for me!!!
