What subjects should I be studying in years 11 & 12?

It's important to choose your subjects in years 11 and 12 carefully. These can provide a pathway to further education and opportunities.

Generally, we suggest that you choose subjects that:

  • You enjoy studying
  • Reflect your interests and abilities
  • Will help you reach your career and employment goals
  • Will develop skills useful throughout your life

Some university courses have prerequisite subjects – these are subjects that will provide you with a level of understanding of subjects that will assist with studying your university course. Prerequisites like maths, physics and chemistry are common for courses like engineering and medicine. It is important to check if your university course has prerequisites. You can do this by browsing our Course and Unit Handbook.
