  • ACE Manual 4.2.1 Mandatory curriculum requirements The Board’s mandatory curriculum requirements for the award of a School Certificate are listed below. This core curriculum for the School Certificate is mandatory for all government schools, accredited non-government schools, schools outside NSW recognised by the Board and for all students who are candidates for the School Certificate…. English The Board Developed syllabus to be studied substantially throughout each of Years 7–10. 400 hours to be completed by the end of Year 10. Mathematics The Board Developed syllabus to be studied substantially throughout each of Years 7–10. 400 hours to be completed by the end of Year 10. Science The Board Developed syllabus to be studied substantially throughout each of Years 7–10. 400 hours to be completed by the end of Year 10. Human Society and Its Environment To be studied substantially throughout each of Years 7–10. 400 hours are to be completed by the end of Year 10 and must include 100 hours of each of History and Geography in Stage 4 and 100 hours of each of Australian History and Australian Geography in Stage 5.
  • Languages Other than English 100 hours to be completed in one language over one continuous 12-month period between Years 7–10 but preferably in Years 7–8. Technological and Applied Studies The Board’s Technology (Mandatory) Years 7-8 syllabus to be studied for 200 hours. Creative Arts 200 hours to be completed consisting of the Board’s 100-hour mandatory courses in each of Visual Arts and Music. It is the Board’s expectation that the 100-hour mandatory courses in these subjects will be taught as coherent units of study and not split over a number of years. Personal Development, Health and Physical Education The Board’s mandatory 300-hour integrated course in Personal Development, Health and Physical Education. This integrated course is to be studied in each of Years 7–10.
  • ACE Manual 4.2.3 Additional (elective) studies The Board does not require schools to offer additional studies. However, it provides a wide range of additional courses that, if taught during Stage 5 in accordance with Board Developed or Board Endorsed syllabuses and indicative time requirements, will be credentialled for the School Certificate. In some cases schools provide, and students choose, courses that include mandatory requirements and that also represent additional (elective) study. Except for History and Geography, such courses will be credentialled with a single grade on the School Certificate Record of Achievement.
  • ACE Manual 4.2.7 Change of course While it is expected that most students will complete the courses started, principals may approve changes of courses that they consider are in a student’s best interest. During Stage 5, the overall requirement of providing sufficient time for students to achieve the objectives and outcomes of each course must be met (refer also to Section 4.3 and to Section 5). Students who have satisfied overall requirements and have satisfactorily completed any 100 hours of study of any Board Developed or Board Endorsed Stage 5 Course should be allocated a grade. The grade should be determined with reference to the relevant Course Performance Descriptors.
  • ACE Manual 4.3.2.1 Granting of leave Granting of leave is a matter for the individual school principal. The principal has discretion in granting leave for legitimate purposes. Requests for leave for a continuous period of less than one term may be dealt with by the principal without effect on School Certificate eligibility. Educational progress can be ensured by a variety of means, including assignments set by the school, tuition, or attendance at another school, including distance education. Where the period of leave requested exceeds one term, the student must demonstrate that School Certificate requirements will be met. In such cases, full details and a recommendation from the principal must be submitted in writing, in advance, to the Board for determination.
