HSC or QCE?

Studying Year 11 or Year 12 in NSW?

The four units offered as part of SCU Head-Start are classified differently.

Biology is approved as a University Developed Board Endorsed Course (UDBEC). This means that you will be able to study this unit as part of your HSC and receive two units, however; it will not contribute to your ATAR.

Communication in Organisations is approved as a University Developed Board Endorsed Course (UDBEC). This means that you will be able to study this unit as part of your HSC and receive two units, however; it will not contribute to your ATAR.

Processes and Philosophy of Engineering will not contribute to your HSC mark but is highly suitable for students with an interest in pursuing further study in the Engineering disciplines.

Visual Design and Communication will not contribute to your HSC mark but is highly suitable for students with an interest in pursuing further studies in media, I.T., writing or many other disciplines.

Studying Year 11 or Year 12 in Qld?

A unit of study successfully completed through SCU Head-Start is classified as an Advanced course of study by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority. This means it will account for 2 credits towards your QCE.
