The SACE System is used in Year 11 and 12 in Adelaide. From Years 5-10, students mainly focus on general English, Maths and Science. In year 11 and 12, students complete subjects as part of their SACE studies, which is the system used in Adelaide to get admission into university.
The SACE involves Stage 1 subjects and Stage 2 subjects. Stage 1 subjects are mostly taken in Year 11, and Stage 2 subjects are mostly taken in Year 12. Each semester of a subject is worth 10 credits when passed. Credits can also be gained through recognised VET courses and other Recognised Studies. Here’s a breakdown of credit requirements:
SACE/NTCET subjects are evaluated through internal (school-based) and external (set by the SACE Board) assessments. External assessments allow for moderated marking standards. While external assessments often include exams, not all subjects have one! For example, an English external piece may be an assignment completed over weeks, and an arts external assessment may be a live performance instead.
SA and NT higher education admissions are managed by the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC). The ATAR pathway is only available to students who complete Research Project B, at least 90 credits at Stage 2, of which at least 60 credits must be from 20-credit Tertiary Admissions Subjects (TAS) and the other 30 credits from TAS, with up to 20 credits of Recognised Studies.
The aggregate calculation process involves selecting a student’s three best-performing subjects (with scaled marks out of 20) and a “flexible option”. This option can be another subject, credits from Recognised Studies, or a mix. SATAC will work out the option that gives each student the highest possible aggregate before ranking them against each other to calculate the ATAR.
The SACE system can be quite complex, and understanding what's going on can be very daunting for new students and parents…
We offer flexible and affordable tutoring options to meet your needs. Choose from in-person or online tutoring sessions, and schedule sessions at a time that works for you. Our tutors will personalize each session to your learning style and pace, ensuring that you get the most out of your tutoring experience.
As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me a wace french tutor who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

Hey! My name is Dhwani. I am a current Bachelor of Medical Radiation (Medical Imaging) student at the University of South Australia.
I graduated high school as the School Dux for the subjects of Chemistry, Biology and General Mathematics and with an ATAR of 99.95.
I have had a lot of experience conducting one-on-one tutoring with students and have also helped students bring up their grades for subjects that they found very difficult. I did this by making up fun ways to help tailor the content in the way the student understood the best. This could be by condensing the information into trigger words or by using real-life examples. We will also go through any tricky questions and any instances where you need further clarification on concepts.
Nonetheless, I will be available 24/7 in case any questions come up while you are trying to sleep!
Hi, my name’s Alex.
I graduated as Dux of high school with a raw ATAR of 99.05. In Year 12 I studied Specialist Math, Math Methods, Physics, and Chemistry, achieving an ‘A+’ grade in each subject, with additional SACE subject merits in both specialist and math methods.
I enjoyed all these subjects, but really have a passion for math, which is why I’m currently studying mathematics and computer science at the University of Adelaide.
I am extremely comfortable with the SACE curriculum/expectations and understand how students can maximise their ATAR.
As a tutor I am happy and able to adapt to specific student’s needs, whether they need support building confidence and knowledge with tricky topics, or helping high achievers pick up the last few marks in a test. I like to ask questions to ensure the student is understanding my explanations and to check I’m not moving too quickly. I also encourage students to actively ask questions about any uncertainties as I believe this really helps to consolidate ideas.
During lessons I focus on covering key concepts/subject matter and going through practice questions. If an exam is approaching I ensure my students are thoroughly prepared.
Overall, my goal as a tutor is to motivate and guide students to fulfil their potential!
Hi, I'm Yumeng! I'm a student at the Australian National University with a major in chemistry, and minors in biology and computer science.
I’ve worked as a tutor since high school – and I’ve loved every second of it. I try to create an environment where you’ll feel comfortable making mistakes, asking for help, and taking initiative for what you learn. After all, that’s what we’re here for! It’s not just about the content itself, but all the study techniques and problem-solving skills that’ll stick with you.
I’m super passionate about science communication. A lot of people picture science as something really prestigious, but whatever goals you have for the future, having an understanding for the sciences is essential in navigating the world. STEM isn’t just about theories and formulas either. It’s so important to make science accessible, and to be able to critically examine all the information we’re bombarded with – which is why I love English too! It might not seem like it, but just like anything else in school, there’s methodology in analysing and creating texts.
I’m keen to share all the tips and tricks I’ve collected to smash your studies. Hopefully by the end of it, you’ll walk away just as excited about these subjects as I am. Looking forward to meeting you!
