QCE and ATAR pathway


This pathway is designed for students intending to continue into university after high school. 

If you are considering university as an option after school you need to make yourself eligible for an Overall Position (OP). This is a score from one (1) to twenty-five (25) that you will receive as well as your QCE. Students in the QCE and OP pathway are not permitted to undertake any external courses (TAFE, traineeship etc.​), if it impacts on school time. This pathway will be more academically demanding and will require more time to be committed at home working on revision and assessment preparation.

Students on this pathway will also be required to sit the Queensland Core Skills test (QCS test). All students on this pathway complete a thorough preparation program for the QCS test.
