INTRODUCTION



It is also essential for parents to assist in making choices appropriate to their child’s
interests and ability


Included is material from the
NSW Board of Studies
. The information is subject to
change by the Board of Studies but is correct at the time of publishing.


Year 11 subjects are called
Preliminary Courses

and Year 12 subjects are call
ed
Higher School Certificate Courses
.


Students must satisfy the requirements of the Preliminary Course before proceeding
to the Higher School Certificate Course. At the conclusion of the Preliminary
Courses students receive a Record of Achievement from

the Board of Studies. This
is based entirely on the School’s recommendation.


Information on Assessment policies, expected outcomes and the assessment
components for each of the Preliminary Courses are available for students at the
beginning of year 11.


Entering into Year 11 can be as daunting as travelling to another planet. However,
knowledge, good planning and organisation will enable both students and parents to
step confidently into this final stage of school education.


Important things to know ab
out Year 11 and 12:



English is the only compulsory subject.



A great amount of effort and time is required to achieve success in each
course.



Students have the choice of Industry and/or academic pathways.



All courses are academically rigorous.



The HSC prepares students very well for post tertiary education.


Lindisfarne is accredited with the NSW Board of Studies to present students for the
award of the Higher School Certificate and we at Lindisfarne have high expectations
for the students and
we help them to strive for excellence within a caring and
supportive environment.

The NSW University Admissions Centre Produces an information

students

and other related publications
.
These

can be downloaded from the UA

Information on Queensland
Tertiary Admissions Centre

can be found at the QTAC
web Site:

http://www.qtac.edu.au/Schools/Year10and11.html


The ATAR

The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR)
is a rank between 0.00 and 99.95
with increments of 0.05. It provides a measure of overall academic achievement in
the HSC that assists Australian Institutions to rank applicants for tertiary course
selection. The ATAR is calculated by the institutions and

released by UAC.


It is important to note that the ATAR is a rank, not a mark, and it is designed only to
be used for tertiary selection.


Admission to most tertiary courses is based on performance in the HSC with
applicants ranked on the basis of their A
TAR.


Other criteria such as a portfolio, interview, audition, or questionnaire may also be
taken into account in conjunction with the ATAR for certain courses.



ATAR rules

Rule 1: Eligibility

To be eligible for an ATAR you must satisfactorily complete at

least 10 units
(including at least two units of English) of courses completed must include at least
three Board Developed courses of two units or greater, and at least four subjects.


Rule 2: Calculation of the ATAR

Your ATAR will be based on an aggregate

of scaled marks in 10 units of
ATAR

courses comprising:



your best two units of English; and



your best eight units from the remaining units, subject to the provision
that no more than two units of Category B Courses be included (VET
Courses are Category B

Courses)


The calculation of the ATAR is subject to the following restrictions and conditions:



You

must satisfactorily complete English.



you may accumulate courses over a period of no more than five years



If

you repeat a course, only the last satisfactory attempt will be used in
the calculation of your ATAR.



if you enrol in a repeat course and subsequently withdraw, either officially by
advising your principal or the Board of Studies or unofficially by non

STUDYING FOR THE HIG
HER SCHOOL
CERTIFICATE


Below are some helpful organisational hints to assist in successfully completing the
HSC.



Evaluate your week including study
time;

free time, sporting commitments and
casual employment then make informed decisions as to what things need to
be cut if necessary.



Senior students should set aside at least 3 to 4 hours each day for 6 days a
week in order to complete homework, assignments,

study and revision.



Plan ahead. A wall calendar may help



Set aside time for recreation.



Implement a home and study timetable as soon as possible.



Your work area should be in a quiet area of the house well away from
distractions.



Your work space should be

kept tidy and well organised.



Turn distractions into rewards when homework/ study/ assignment
are

completed.



Seek help from teachers and family in order to achieve the above goals.



ASSESSMENT

At the beginning of year 11 and again at the beginning of yea
r 12,

students will be
given a formal assessment booklet which contains detailed information regarding the
school’s assessment policies and procedures. The assessment booklet will also
detail the assessment tasks for each subject, including outcomes asses
sed in each
task and dates due.


In Y
ear
12 internal assessment account
s

for 50% of the HSC mark.


It is in the student’s best interests to complete all assessments to a high standard.


Below is a brief summary of the school’s Assessment policies and proce
dures for
Year 11 and Year 12 students.

eSubmission of assignments

Students must submit all written assignments online via myLindisfarne.

Assessment Marks

Students will be notified of their mark and rank for each assessment task at the
time the marked tas
k is returned to the student. Students will receive clear
advice and feedback from the course teacher, which indicates:



The student’s attainment in the task relative to the outcomes.



The student’s relative position within the group.

ool

and 12

Deadlines
f
or Assignments
a
nd Presentations

Assignments will be due usually no later than 9:00pm on the date due.



Students will not be advantaged by submitting (written) or completing (oral)
assignments before the due date.



Marks will be deducted for late assignments

based on the following:

20% deducted for 1 day late

40% deducted for 2 days late

60% deducted for 3 days late

80% deducted for 4 days late

100% deducted for 5 or more days late


Failure to hand in an assessment task will result in a mark of zero. However
, in
order for the student to satisfy the course requirements, the student must
submit the task at a later date otherwise the student places themselves at risk
of being allocated an ‘N’ (non
-
completion of course) determination for the
course.


Late Extensi
ons
f
or Assignments

Applications must be in writing to the
Assistant principal: teaching and learning

well before the due date.

No extension will be granted unless exceptional circumstances prevail.
Reasons may include:



Illness prior to the week in which
the assignment is due;



School representative commitments, for the week prior to the assignment
being due;



Verifiable family disruption of an extreme nature, etc.


Students must have documentary evidence to support their claim for an
extension, such as
Medical Certificates.


All cases for extensions will be considered on their merit.


Using Computers
to

Produce Assignments

Students are required to make regular backups their work.



We recommend that students keep a working copy on the school’s network
dr
ive as well as a working copy on their home computer. The USB memory
stick should be regarded as a transfer device between school and home.


Students are also required to show a hard copy or email a copy of their work
under progress, at the request of the
ir course teacher.

Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the practice of copying another person’s work without
acknowledgement or permission. The plagiarists claim this as their own work.


The School regards any act plagiarism as a serious breach of school rules

and
as such, any student who plagiarises another person’s work will be dealt with
seriously indeed. This could also lead to an ‘N’ determination for the course
concerned.


There are no excuses for copying other person’s work. Students should also be
awa
re that copying and pasting from the Internet into one’s assignment is
considered as plagiarism, unless the copied work is cited and referenced in a
bibliography.


Note the eSubmission

of assignments automatically check for originality and
makes reports available for students to peruse.


An assignment that is made up of a majority of referenced material will be given
a very low mark.


Assignments must indicate to a large degree that the

majority of the work is the
student’s own original work.


Referenced work should be used wisely. Students should consult with the
course teacher if they are unsure of the expectations of quoting another
person’s work.


Students Falling Behind In Their Wo
rk

If a student falls behind in their work, then it is up to them to make up the work
lost
.
Suggestions include:



Meeting with the course teacher outside of class.



Obtaining copies of notes from another student who is up to date with
their work.


If the Sch
ool determines that any senior student is not making the appropriate
effort within a Preliminary or HSC Course, then warning letters will be sent
home warning that the student may be given an “N” determination.


EXAMINATIONS

Examination Malpractice

If a s
tudent is proven to have been involved in malpractice (cheating) during an
examination, the student will be awarded a zero mark for that examination and the
matter will be referred to the
Assistant Principal: Teaching and Learning
.



Each case will be
dealt with in accordance with its seriousness and by the
application the school’s discipline policy.

NON
-
COMPLETION

OF

ASSESSMENT

TASKS

Where there is no valid reason for not completing an assessment task, a zero
mark must be recorded for that task and a

warning letter must be sent.


If a student’s attempt at a particular task is a non genuine one, a warning letter will
also be sent and the student will be required to resubmit the assignment.


Warning letters

The warning letter is designed for the
following purposes:



Advise the student of the problem to be corrected.



Generally the student will be given a two
-
week period to correct the problem.



Alert the student to the possible consequences of an ‘N’ determination.



Advise the parent or guardian in wr
iting if the student is
less than

18

years of
age
.



Request from the student/parent a written acknowledgement of the warning.


If the student fails to correct the problem within the allocated time frame, follow up
letters will be issued.


C
HOOSING
S
UBJECTS

When making decisions about which subjects to select, parents and students need to
keep the following in mind:



Does the student have a fairly good idea of the career path he or she would like
to
follow?

In many cases this will determine the type of subjects selected.



Does the student wish to proceed to tertiary
education?

The course the student
wishes to take at university, for example, may have a prerequisite that must be
achieved before enrolment is pe
rmitted.



Tertiary institutions will continue to base their selection procedures very
closely on the HSC results. It is therefore important for students to select
subjects which will allow them to maximise their marks. (However, please
note that selection o
f subjects based on guessing what subjects might be
scaled up or down
is

strongly discouraged because the nature of scaling
depends on how ALL students in the state have performed in any given
year. The debate over scaling is a very complex one. The best
advice is
that to maximise marks (remembering prerequisites), students should select
those subjects they like the most.



“Easy” subjects. Some subjects have an undeserved reputation as being
“easy”. THIS IS NOT SO. Obviously some students will find some sub
jects
easier than others because of their particular interests or abilities but there is no
such thing as an ‘easy’ subject.



Different subjects require different skills. For example, Physics requires skill in
Mathematics, while Legal Studies or History etc
. require essay writing abilities.
Other subjects may require both of the above. It is therefore important that each
student considers selecting subjects that require the skills and abilities they
possess.

CAREERS

It would
seem

sensible for a student t
o gain some feel for a career area by taking
particular subjects.

Legal Studies would seem a good option for a student who
wants a
career

in Law. However, Legal Studies is not a
prerequisite

for studying
Law at University.


If a student wishes to pursue

a career in some form of business, then a working
knowledge of Mathematics, Computing or Business Studies may be of interest.
Again, they are not
prerequisites
.


Careers in
Medicine

do require students to have studied at least one of the
Sciences. Again, different institutions require different prerequisites for Medicine.
If you are considering a career in Medicine please make an appointment with the
careers advisor as soon as poss
ible.


Students considering a career as a pilot must have a very good understanding of
Mathematics.


If a student does not know what he or she wants to do (which is the case for a
large number of students) then he or she should try to keep all options open
. If a
student has an interest in the Sciences, then look at Chemistry, Physics, Biology
or Senior Science. If a student is an ‘all
-
rounder’ then a balance between
technology and humanities is recommended.


In order

to o
btain the best possible results, sel
ect

those subjects which most
interest the student and which cater best to his or her strengths


During Year

11
and

Year
12 your career ideas and

goals may change. Don't
panic,
this happens to a lot of students.


If you are not sure if the career you
want to pursue has prerequisites
,

then book an
appointment

to
see

the careers advisor.

GLOSSARY

Before you choose your subjects you should know the following terms:


Course prerequisite:

A subject you must pass (open at a specific level) in your HSC in o
rder to gain
admission to a particular university course. Your
ATAR
may be above the entry level
for a course but if you haven't got the marks in the prerequisite subject(s) you will not
be offered a place.


Subject prerequisite:

To gain entry to some sub
jects at some universities you must have completed a
particular HSC subject at a required level. For example, you may not be allowed to
enrol in Chemistry unless you've done 2U Chemistry in the HSC. Some universities
offer bridging courses to bring you up
to the required standard before classes
commence.


Assumed knowledge subjects:

Universities o
ft
en assume that you have studied certain subjects at HSC level. For
example, if Extension Mathematics is assumed knowledge for a particular course and
you have o
nly done Mathematics then you may have problems passing that subject
in your first year. Many universities are now also nominating recommended subjects.


Undergraduate:

A student who is currently studying for their first degree. Eg
.

Bachelor of Music.


Postgraduate
:

A student who has completed a higher degree. Eg. Graduate Diploma; Masters; PhD.

Course Description

The Preliminary course involves the study of both designing and producing. This is explored through areas
such as design theory and practice, design processes, environmental and social issues, communication,
research, technologies, and the manipulation of
materials, tools and techniques. The course involves hands
-
on practical activities which develop knowledge and skills in designing and producing. The Preliminary
course includes the completion of at least two design projects. These projects involve the des
ign, production
and evaluation of a product, system or environment and includes evidence of the design process recorded in
a design folio. The design folio can take a variety of different forms.


The HSC course applies the knowledge and understanding of d
esigning and producing from the preliminary
course. It involves the development and realisation of a Major Design Project, a case study of an innovation,
along with the study of innovation and emerging technologies. The study of the course content is integ
rated
with the development of a Major Design Project, worth 60% of the HSC mark. This project requires students
to select and apply appropriate design, production and evaluation skills to a product, system or environment
