Assessment

International Recognition

SACE International is an internationally recognized matriculation programme, and has provided students with the opportunity to obtain the SACE in their own country and study at top universities in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States and Asia.


Assessment

Through the SACE International programme, students will obtain an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). ATAR is a percentile ranking which measures a student’s overall performance in comparison to their peers upon completion of their study. The maximum ATAR is 99.95, which is awarded to the top 0.05% of students. It is the primary criterion used by the Australian universities to select students into undergraduate courses.

Assessment of individual subjects in the SACE International programme consists of two components:

  • School assessment (70%)
  • Public examinations (30%)

The school assessment component encourages independent learning and hones study skills for university. Assessment tasks like projects, assignments and laboratory work are assigned yearlong. Marks are submitted to the SACE Board to be moderated. External examinations are provided by the SACE Board and developed by examination panels that include secondary school and university representatives. Examination papers are marked in Australia to maintain high standards.
