Senior Subjects

Kimberley College offers General and Applied Syllabuses together with a range of vocational education and training options. Results in General and Applied subjects and VET can contribute to the award of a QCE and may contribute to an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) calculation, although no more than one result in an Applied subject or VET (Certificate III or higher) can be used in the calculation of a student’s ATAR.

PLEASE NOTE: Subjects on offer each year may vary due to student interest and availability so the following information is meant as a general guide only. Subject selection will be discussed with you at the time of enrolment, and you will be provided with a subject handbook with detailed information on each subject and assessment.
