Typically, native speakers of English take four subjects in the first year and, depending on Year 12 results, will continue with either three or four of those subjects into their second year. Students who are not native speakers of English have the opportunity to take IELTS (International English Language Testing System) as one of their subject choices. All students studying in Year 12 are normally required to achieve at least a B grade in three of their subjects in order to progress to Year 13.
