Welcome to Years 11 and 12 at Hutchins. Below you will find a video that details the selection of your course for your final years of schooling. The information video will summarise the requirements for the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) and provide information around the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) and Vocational Education and Training (VET).
