While in Year 10, all students will have the opportunity to attend an interview with a member of staff. This interview is a career counseling session to help students choose courses for senior school to help them find a pathway towards further education or employment.
Parents are encouraged to attend with their child as the amount of information can be overwhelming to students.
You and your child could look at job opportunities, job descriptions, salaries, and qualifications needed, etc in preparation for finding direction during their schooling years.
The following websites could be helpful in getting an idea of areas of interest for your student.
TISC is an online service regarding all things tertiary.
It is a wealth of information about Western Australian universities and how to get there.
Entry into the public universities in Western Australia is a matching process of the people who want to go to university and the number of places that are available. To assist in this process, Year 12 students are ranked and places offered on the basis of this ranking.
Your TEA will be calculated and then converted to an ATAR, which tells you where you’re ranked relative to other students. This will be the same position as a ranking based on your TEA, but the TEA isn’t able to convey this information directly to you. If you have an ATAR of 70.00, for example, it indicates that you’ve achieved as well as or better than 70% of the Year 12 school leaver age population.
Current year WACE students can access results online up to 1 March of the following year.
You can obtain your ATAR and scaled scores from a past year by completing and submitting the Application for Record of Results with the appropriate fee to TISC.
