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 assistance with SACE studies or subject specific help, KIS Academics tutors have a thorough understanding of their subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for SACE assessments. Learn about our SACE 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 someone 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, 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!
Heyo, My name is Kashyapchandra,** but you can call me Kash!**
I'm a current Medical Student at the University of Adelaide_ _and also an incredibly experienced tutor who would love to support you on your education journey!
I pride myself on being able to run sessions tailored to fit your specific needs and goals by creating thorough lesson plans and constantly following up. When it comes to my specific tutoring style, I love bringing abstract STEM concepts into focus through simple analogies while also providing you solid understanding of marking criteria and test structures so you can maximise your opportunities to score well!
I'm familiar with the pains of cramming for a test the night before or pulling an all-nighter to finish an assignment in high school; so I hope that by sharing my relevant experience and knowledge you can avoid these stresses and have a much smoother and fulfilling ride through schooling. Whether it be drafting or preparing for a test I am both competent and confident at sharing the strategies that helped me reach my goals.
There's few things that make me happier than seeing one of my students reach their goals, so please don't hestitate to contact me if you have any questions or just want to have a conversation!
Hi, I’m Emilia and I am a recent graduate from Pembroke School. I love teaching and am excited to help students develop their skills! Having graduated in 2021, I am very familiar with the current SACE syllabus. I am now studying the Bachelor of Science Advanced (Honours) at the University of Adelaide with an interest in majoring in either Biology or Geology. I have continued to study English literature and Ancient studies as electives in university, maintaining my knowledge in the humanities.
My teaching is dependent on the needs of my students, whether it be explanations for difficult concepts, revision of material learned at school, assignment help or learning ahead of school work. It is also important for me to provide teaching that will suit various learning styles which enables me to make sure that my explanations are easy to understand. I particularly like to focus on improving the communication and English skills of my students, as this can improve performance across all subjects, not only the ones I teach.
I know that learning can be difficult so I make sure to be a support for my students and help make subjects fun and engaging.
Looking forward to working with you,
Getting a tutor or not is a decision that is very personal to each and every student. If you feel as if you’re struggling in a subject with some of the concepts that are being taught or even if you’re wanting to get that one extra step higher with your grades, a tutor will definitely be able to help you achieve these goals. SACE specifically is delivered in a relatively fast-paced manner compared to your previous years of studying, so there’s nothing wrong with asking for a helping hand especially considering these years form the basis of your future career.
A good tutor should be able to listen to all your concerns about the subject at hand and be able to create a step by step plan for you that will allow you to relieve all those concerns. They should have strong knowledge about the subject they are tutoring and whilst they may not know everything, should have the initiative to get back to you on concepts they themselves may be unsure about. The basic point here is they should be your guide through this process. A tutor shouldn’t ever be doing the work for you but should be giving you advice on how you can complete the work in the best, most efficient way possible.
There is no specific subject that requires or doesn’t require tutoring. Remember, tutoring is a process that is designed for you, specific to you. Every student is different in their own unique way and is going to have different strengths and weaknesses. So what one person finds easy another may find more difficult. It all depends on whichever subject you think you need some extra help in.
