    Re: Hsc At Tafe?

    How is everyones experience thus far? It is the first week and my first impression is that this year will be long, requiring at least 20 hours of study per week outside of TAFE hours.

    My brother also studied few HSC subjects at TAFE before progressing to university and he has said it is a bad idea to attempt the full HSC at TAFE, maybe he is right?

    er, no different to studying it in a high school environment tbh. in fact i would say the TAFE environment is so much better, as people are attending because they WANT to (like mature age students or those going the second time round) as compared to those staying in school for the social aspect only.

    The only mandatory subject which must be undertaken when completing the HSC is English. However youget to choose the level eg: Advace or standard (both dont affect your uai scaling)

    Re: Hsc At Tafe?

    Hi
    Sorry to be bumping this thread after ages but I've recently finished an exchange year overseas and have been thinking about doing my HSC through TAFE just because I really don't think I could stand the environment of a normal school. It feels like my best option right now. I'm 17 and the plan was that I just continue onto year 11 but it would be perfect if I can have my HSC completed by the end of 2010.

    I did some research on where I can do the course (I think it's 6500 Certificate III) but I live in Port Macquarie and I don't think they actually have this option at the campus. How did you find out about the options your campus requires?

    Is the best idea to actually just walk into the school and ask them in person what they offer? You don't need appointments or anything like this?

    Also, I'm working on getting into Medicine in University of Melbourne but is it actually possible to get the UAI I need through TAFE? (I have a feeling it's around the 95 mark...) Now that I've read through all of your posts I've thought a lot about the idea of this and it sounds amazing BUT I'm just scared I might not have a chance getting the marks I need. Think I might just need to work my ass off here though.

    Thanks for any advice you could give me

    Re: Hsc At Tafe?

    Yes, it's best to go to your local TAFE campus and organise an appointment with either the head of the department that your course is in (for the HSC I think it's the General Education dept.), or the TAFE counsellor, who'll give you up to date info.

    Like you've said, they only offer the HSC at some campuses, though there is also the TPC (Cert. IV in Teritary Preparation) which can be used for uni admittance. You'd need to check if Melbourne Uni would accept the TPC though, as some universities don't (best to ring the admissions department at Melbourne and ask). I did the TPC in 2007 and used it to get into uni.

    TAFE is a really great alternative to school, I despised school and was so glad I left to go to TAFE, it's a very different atmosphere. Good luck with what you decide

    Spoke with Kerrie Keene from North Sydney earlier today - very knowledgeable and accommodating, and was able to answer all my questions.

    I'll be there in 2010 for the combined program.

    He didn't ask to be insulted ^
    Loser.

    Anyway @ Bankstown TAFE guy, you left year 10 and are planning to complete Year 11 and 12 in the same year? Wow that sounds like a pretty good idea wish I thought of that, it kinda has the same effect as an acceleration program

    Don't do HSC at tafe. It sucks lol. Plus HSC is offered at every school, why do it at tafe? Unless you have a timetable clash or subject not offered at tafe, I won't do my main HSC at tafe.
