In 2019 Year 11 students commenced their studies under a new
senior assessment and tertiary entrance (SATE) system. This has impacted on the requirements to
receive the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
The new systems include:
- a new senior assessment model
that combines school-based assessment with external assessment
- new processes to strengthen the
quality and comparability of school-based assessment
- a new ranking system for
students who wish to apply for university. The Australian Tertiary
Admission Rank (ATAR) will be used to rank eligible Year 12 graduates,
rather than the Overall Position (OP). ATARs will be calculated and issued
by the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC).
also introduced ‘My Path’ to assist students with their preparation and
tracking. My Path is an innovative tool that helps Year 10 students choose
their senior subjects, determine their ATAR eligibility and check whether their
senior subject selection will meet prerequisites for courses they may want to
pursue after Year 12.
