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.
SACE subjects and subject performance is used to calculate your ATAR.
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. (But we’re aiming for way higher here!) 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
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. If you ever need some private tutoring with SACE studies or subject specific help, KIS Academics tutors have a thorough understanding of their subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements. A tutor near you will be able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for SACE assessments.

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!
My name is Piero, and I am a Mechanical Engineering student majoring in Aerospace at Adelaide University. I also undertake language classes at the German academy with the hope of one day studying or working in Germany and have been studying since 2016. Through this I believe I have developed exceptional communication skills by being able convey ideas in different ways and at varying levels. Outside of languages I have a passion for maths and the sciences, specifically physics and chemistry. I have a vast knowledge and understanding of the SACE and the factors that markers are looking for. This is because when at school I was someone that could always be turned to for help.
Throughout my schooling at Pulteney Grammar I received merits in Chemistry for both Stage 1 and 2, German merits in both Stage 1 and 2, academic excellence awards in every term, and achieved Dux of Pulteney Grammar in 2021.
I also have previous experience teaching as a Surf Life Saving instructor. Through this I understand how to persevere with a student to ensure they achieve at the highest level possible. I also understand the importance of patience when instructing someone.
I hope to see you soon!
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!
