IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR YOU?
This course is accepted as a NSW Year 12 equivalent qualification. This provides pathways for people who were unable to undertake study to achieve a NSW Higher School Certificate. A TES is calculated and issued on completion. The course provides an alternate entry pathway to universities. Universities recognise the TES as an alternative to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) issued by NSW High Schools as the university entrance mark.
