About VCE Subject Selection

All Clonard College students undertake a full load of VCE: five sequences of Units 1 – 4. *

Year 11

Students in Year 11 take 4 subjects + English + RE.

Year 12

Students typically undertake 4 subjects + English + RE.  Exceptions to this are students who have accelerated into Unit 3 & 4 studies in Year 10 or 11. 

Students are expected to continue into Year 12, the 4 elected subjects and English (students who have done Literature in Units 1 & 2 may choose to take Literature instead of English).  Students are discouraged from entering a Unit 3 & 4 study without the relevant Unit 1 & 2 study. 

VCE Subjects

*There are some exceptions to the full load requirement.  Students who have extensive physical and / or mental health issues can apply for a reduced load.  This requires documented support from a professional third-party and must be ongoing.
