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 ATAR studies, which is the system used in Western Australia to get admission into university.
WACE subjects and subject performance are used to calculate your ATAR.
WACE stands for the Western Australian Certificate of Education. This is a certificate that students receive on successful completion of the requirements of the WACE at the conclusion of their senior secondary education. This is what is recognised by all universities in Australia and other tertiary institutions.
Students are to choose their subjects for Year 10, 11 and 12 if they choose the ATAR pathway. It is recommended that they choose their subjects in year 10 so they can best prepare for WACE related topics in Year 11.
Requirements for subject choices for WACE:
Although requirements are for year 12 courses, schools require you to choose 2 list A subjects and 2 list B so that you don't change the subject in-between year 11 and year 12. In fact, changing subjects between Year 11 and 12 is highly unadvisable!
Apart from this, there are certain combinations of subjects you are not allowed to do. Such as:
There are also certain subjects that must be taken together. For example, if you take Maths Specialist, it is imperative that you also take Maths Methods.
Some schools do not offer some subjects, so it is important to look at the list that the school gives to see if they can do the subject they wish.
The WACE ATAR 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 assistance with your ATAR, KIS Academics tutors have a thorough knowledge of the subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for internal and external assessments. Learn about our WACE tutoring and book a free study skills consultation with a KIS Academics tutor.
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

Hi! My name is Nandana. As a high school graduate, I know exactly how you must be feeling towards your own WACE journey. It can be quite daunting, especially considering the immense pressure you're put under. Thus, my goal is to use my experience in upper school to provide you with authentic tips to study as efficiently as possible while leaving time to do the things you enjoy (which is extremely important of course!).
For instance, when I was in high school, I juggled studying and my extra-curricular commitments like dancing, leadership activities at school as well as spending time with family and friends. This required me to study as efficiently as possible, and in an organised fashion so that I had enough time to rest and do the things I enjoyed. As a result I was able to score the ATAR I aimed for and also received several accolades like the General Exhibition Award (Top 50 in WA) and Subject Excellence for English (top 0.5% in WA). I am confident I can share these tips and skills with you, as well as specific, subject-related tips so that you can maximise your academic potential.
Moreover, my experience in tutoring a range of students of all age groups (Year 7-12) has given me a wealth of knowledge about catering to the individual needs of students and their learning styles.
A little bit about me: I am currently studying BPhil (Honours) in Integrated Medical Sciences and Clinical Practice with a direct pathway into Doctor of Medicine at UWA. In my spare time, you can find me dancing, playing my ukulele or spending time with my friends and family.
Hey there! I’m Zavier - and hopefully, your next tutor.
I'm studying a Bachelor of Social Work, on a Curtin scholarship, and a Pinnacle Foundation scholarship. Outside of KISAcademics, I am a childcare worker for KidsCo! My hobbies include musical theatre, discussing philosophy, and drinking obscene amounts of caffeine.
My passion for tutoring stems from my belief in student-centered learning. All people should have access to a high-quality education, and oftentimes students are let down by an educational system that doesn't tailor its delivery to their individual needs. We all learn in different ways and have different strengths; as your tutor, I promise to take a judgment-free, empathetic approach to our sessions; listening to what your specific challenges are and providing you with the support you need to get the results you want!
Whether you want to improve your grades to get into a particular university course, or simply to beat your older sibling’s ATAR score, I’m here to help you reach your goals.
If you are wanting help with English, Literature, or Psychology, look no further than my page! Request me as a tutor and I'll set up a FREE study skills consultation so that we can get to know each other and I can find out from you how I can best support your academic progress.
