Year 12 and 13 University Entrance 

For Year 12 students, they need to be aware of their opportunities for University Entrance literacy credits. They need five reading and five writing credits and, for many, those writing credits come from external examinations. Some Year 13 students did not consider this last year and made some decisions in Level 2 exams that left them short on UE literacy.

Similarly, Year 13students need to realise that their results do matter. Some wrongly believe that only Year 12 counts. While Year 12 is important for university scholarship and halls of residence applications, Year 13 is the key to actually getting into university. Students must achieve 14 credits in three UE-approved subjects and pass Level 3 overall. A failure to do either of those will cost students their university place.
