Australian Curriculum

The Senior Secondary Certificate of Education (SSCE) is the graduation certificate awarded to most students in Australian high schools (years 11 and 12 of schooling). It is equivalent to the High School Diploma of North America and the A-Levels of the U.K. Australian schools do more than just educate students. They prepare them for life − developing communication skills, self-discipline and respect for themselves, their peers and their world. Schools offer a broad curriculum in the key learning areas – English, mathematics, studies of society and the environment, science, arts, Languages Other Than English (LOTE), technology, health and physical education. They also believe strongly in the benefits of a rounded education – including the teamwork, self-expression and personal development that happen outside the classroom.


Graduates of a Senior Secondary Certificate of Education will have: 1) literacy, numeracy and communication skills and use information communication technologies skills to present knowledge and ideas to others 2) cognitive skills to access, record and act on information from varied sources appropriate to subject disciplines and to move across subject disciplines to develop new expertise and 3) cognitive, technical, communication and creative skills for particular disciplines and to integrate disciplines to solve problems, to underpin flexible and analytical thinking and to work with others.

SSCE final score

Universities of Australia generate a nationally standardised final score for each SSCE student called the Equivalent National Tertiary Entrance Rank (ENTER). Universities and other Higher Education providers typically use this mark as the main criterion in selecting domestic students.
