Students must complete at least three units of English over their Year 11 and 12 studies, including both

Units 3 & 4 in the same year (Year 12).
English is included in all students’ primary four subjects when calculating an ATAR regardless of whether or not their English study score is one of their four highest scores.

Business may make the world go round, but accountants make businesses go round. Accountants
ensure that businesses are financially viable and analyse financial information to reach data-driven
decisions. Accounting plays an integral role in the successful operation and management of businesses.
They ensure financial resources are managed efficiently and provide strategic advice to ensure
businesses flourish. VCE Accounting develops students’ ability to critically analyse information and
articulate the costs, benefits and implications of different outcomes.

Business makes the world go round or so the saying goes. You possibly work for one now or definitely will in the future and without fail you will have bought things from them. Have you ever wondered how they really work? Take the step to Business Management and find out.

The course looks at both small and large businesses and how they go about getting you through their doors. Marketing, advertising,
decision-making, dealing with staff and being able to communicate effectively are all part of the wondrous business world.

Geography allows students to explore, analyze and come to understand the characteristics of places that make up our world. Geographers are interested in key questions concerning places and geographic phenomena:

What is there? Why is it there? What are the effects of it being there? How is it changing over time? How could, and should, it change in the future? How is it different from other places and
phenomena? How are places and phenomena connected?

Students explore these questions through fieldwork, the use of geospatial technologies and investigation of a wide range of secondary sources. These methods underpin the development of a unique framework for understanding the world, enabling students to appreciate its complexity, the diversity of interactions of its environments, economies and cultures, and the processes that helped form and transform these.

VCE Legal Studies examines the institutions and principles that are essential to the Australian legal system. Students develop an understanding of the rule of law, law-makers, legal institutions, the relationship between the people and the Australian Constitution, the protection of rights in Australia, and the Victorian justice system.

How did you get to where you are today? What lies ahead in our future?

History is simply the act of making meaning of the past, whether it be days ago, years ago or millennia. In History, we examine events, figures, artworks, ideas, movements, places and periods, not only to understand them, but to shed light on our own world, to understand issues within our time and to contribute to the fabric of the blanket that is humankind’s collective memory. As no topic is irrelevant to History, historians develop key skills in many and varied areas, such as visual and language analysis, critical reading and viewing, debating and powers of persuasion and writing.
