    I dropped out of school half way through year 12 and went to TAFE and started year 12 again. It was a good move as I find it a better environment to learn in (smaller classes, not as strict, more freedom).
    The subject choice depends on which TAFE you go to (go and ask at your local one/s to see what they have). I go to Gosford and can only do 3 subjects there (English, Modern History and IT) I have to do 2 through OTEN (distance ed.) (2 Unit Maths and Physics). You may have trouble if you don't want to do any subjects through OTEN (unless you don't mind doing year 11 and 12 again).
    Good luck and I hope you make the right decision.

    The HSC at TAFE is exactly the same as the one you do at school so your UAI has no advantage/disadvantage from doing the HSC at TAFE. Doing the HSC can be worth it but it depends on the individual situation (eg. there are other ways to get into Uni other completing the HSC and getting the UAI needed). It would be a waste of a year if you didn't need the HSC for what you want to do but once again this depends on the individual situation.

    Yes I got recognition for all my prelim subjects so I only have to take one extra year to do my HSC again.

    No problem. I dropped out becasue I just didn't put any effort into any of my subjects and my marks reflected that. I thought having a fresh start would help so I gave it a go.

    Just to go further then what Adrian has said you can also do both the prelim & HSC in the one year at certain TAFE and the subject choices there are more then the local high school ranging from Agriculture to 4u maths.

    Also there are no UAI penalties associated with doing the HSC at Tafe it depends weather you can do better then the last time you did the HSC and willing to put more work in to it.
    Still the best.

    Against the other people in your class, like school. Through OTEN I guess it would be against the other people doing that course through OTEN.

    I thought i'd throw in some more options to confuse you

    You can also do a Tertiary Preparation Certificate through TAFE which would give you a Tertiary Entrance Score which is sort of like the UAI but not really and almost all Universities accept it. Chances are with a TES you'd be going into the uni under a different bucket of selection criteria than UAI people.
    http://www.nci.tafensw.edu.au/course...ation/4174.htm
    http://www.lg.tafensw.edu.au/2384/2395/tpcinfo.htm
    http://www.lg.tafensw.edu.au/2384/2395/default.htm

    Then some Universities also have a STATS test
    http://www.uac.edu.au/admin/stat.html

    You can see a large number of alternative schemes here
    http://www.uac.edu.au/admin/schemes.html

    If you decide to go to TAFE you can get some of your coursework recognised and credited at a University level
    http://www.avcc.edu.au/students/cred...nsfer/acts.htm

    Some Universities will also take into account prior work experience of periods greater than 1 year.

    You can also try as mature age in a few years.

    But i'm sure someone keen to get into University would have at least read the UAC page on their options if not go to the University websites for each one they wish to attend.

    As a final note if you are trying to get into a course requiring a UAI of 90+ and you managed a UAI of less than 75 first time around the chances are you will not crack 90 the second time around and it was not meant to be you getting into the uni with a high UAI.

    If you do it a at Tafe there is a lab where you do experiment

    OTEN - there is one practical experiment day where you go to a particular school and do all of the course compulsoury experiment in one go.
    Still the best.

    I did my VCE at TAFE. Pretty much all subjects offered at secondary schools were listed on the TAFE enrollment form. Only different I noticed TAFE/school is that the teacher tend to treat you more like an adult + the average student age is much older than sec. school !!

    Hey Boi..
    just thought I'd pop a note to let you know that I just finished doing my HSC at TAFE, and it was good! I worked much better in that sort of environment than I did at high school, and performed better as well. It's alot more informal - you're on a first name basis with all the teachers, and your schedule may work out to be pretty random, but it's good. Generally, it's pretty easy to learn there because alot of people are there under similar circumstances as each other (having dropped out or whatever), and are pretty focussed, so you don't get as distracted during classes.
    I dropped out of high school half way through year 12, and spent 2 years at TAFE doing my HSC. I did 3 subjects (preliminary and HSC) in the first year, and 3 new subjects this year.. which is a pretty good option if you're working or something as well, because there's alot more time to devote to individual subjects (and I only had to be there 3 days a week). I also did a subject through OTEN which I wouldn't recommend unless you're HUGELY motivated.. it's really hard to get your arse into gear.
    Anyway, check out their website and find out what classes your nearest TAFE runs. I was at Hornsby and they had English standard, advanced, extension 1 and fundamentals.. General, 2U and 3U maths, economics, modern and ancient history, physics, chem, bio, senior science, art, IT VET, business studies, software.. and I think that's it, but yeah, pretty good selection!
    Give it a try.. it worked well for me, and everyone I know who's done it really loved it so good luck!

    Cheers
    Amy

    Should i ring tafe now/go to career adviser to dicuss about doing HSC again or wait till i get my results in dec. thanks
