      • Requirements – VCE subject offerings are based on recommendations from current subject teachers. Students are advised to undertake a Unit 3 & 4 VCE sequence in year 11 only if it relates to their intended path of study and if a student can demonstrate academic competence.
      • Restrictions – some Learning Areas restrict the number of electives you can do, in what year you can do them and in what sequence units can be completed.
      • Limited numbers – A large number of units are offered for student selection but individual units will run only if there are sufficient numbers to form a viable class AND in some cases there will be a limit on numbers due to staffing and resources.
      • Vertical classes – some electives are offered to both year 9 and 10 students. Students in year 10 are able to select from year 9 and 10 subjects.
