Welcome to Years 11 and 12 at Hutchins. Below you will find a presentation that details the selection of your course for your final years of schooling. The information presentation 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). We encourage you to watch this presentation as a family, and review the Course Handbook prior to making subject selections. Beneath these links you will find the contact details of staff who are able to provide further guidance around this process.

For questions around the requirements of the TCE and ATAR please do not hesitate to contact Mr James Seddon.
