    Year 11 Subject Selection

    Hi,
    We have to choose subjects for Year 11 and was thinking of doing these:

    • English Advanced
    • 3U Maths
    • Physics
    • Chemistry
    • Modern History
    • PDHPE?


    Does PDHPE include practicals? I want to go to the medical field and believe PDHPE will help, however I'm helpless at PE/sports. And does PDHPE/Modern Hist scale well? I'm aiming for at least a 98+ atar.

    PDHPE doesn't have any compulsory sport practical, but that does not mean that the teacher cannot take the class out and participate in sport, either due to explaining a particular syllabus dot point, or as a reward for completing an assessment task. Sport in PDHPE doesn't happen very often so you are fine in that aspect.

    In terms of scaling, that shouldn't be too much of a concern. You can get any ATAR with any subject selection, as long as you do well in every subject. This website below better explains scaling and can help you pick your subjects

    Yeah no practicals in PDHPE, we only ever had them the week after exams as a bit of a treat, certainly not anything to worry about.
    If those are the subjects you are interested in and think you'll enjoy them then go for it.

    Wish you the best of luck : )

    Don't worry about scaling - I believe my worst scaling subject actually ended up contributing the highest.
