Add a Title

The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) is generally based on two years of full-time study, but students may take more than two years. There is no time limit to complete the SACE but there are restrictions regarding Tertiary Entrance.

Questions should be directed to the Senior Campus Deputy Principal, Mr Brent Bloffwitch or Learning Community Leaders, Ms Margarita Paleologos (Laslett) and Mr Matthew Camerlengo (Campbell).

Promotion to Stage 2

Promotion from Stage 1 to Stage 2 is automatic if a student gains an achievement level of a C or better, in the majority of subjects that lead to Stage 2. Students who do not attain this level of achievement will be required to meet with the Learning Community Leader.

Most subjects in Stage 2 require successful completion at Stage 1. Learning Area staff recommendation and a C grade or better, is the achievement level that qualifies a student for automatic promotion into the same, or related subject, at Stage 2 level. Other subjects without prerequisites may be taken through negotiation with the relevant Learning Area Coordinator.

Course planning and subject choice will be guided by the work undertaken in the Personal Learning Group time. It is important to understand that some university courses have prerequisites that must be met at Stage 2 and in turn these Stage 2 subjects may have prerequisites at Stage 1.
