YEAR 12 - Stage 2: SACE

In Stage 2, you will be awarded grades from A+ to E– in your
assessments and for your final grade. Your teachers will assess
70% of your work. The SACE Board assesses the other 30% -
This means your final result in each Stage 2 subject will be
based largely on your school assessments throughout Year 12.
The SACE Board sources a sample of students' work from each
class, which is representative of a range of grades across every
Stage 2 subject. Assessment experts then check to confirm that
the grades are accurate, fair, and comparable with other
students across the state.
Confirming or adjusting grades:
Teachers grade student work with reference to the performance
standards provided in the subject outlines. At the end of each
year, the SACE Board confirms that grades given at one school
are comparable with grades given at another school. The process
of confirming and adjusting school assessment grades is referred
to as 'moderation'.
The SACE Board marks the external
assessment component of all subjects.
These assessments can be written
examinations, oral examinations,
investigations, or performances.
There is one compulsory subject in Year
12 — the Research Project. It is a
one-semester (10-credit) subject that
gives you the chance to do in-depth
research on a topic of your choice.
Some Stage 2 subjects have written
examinations that are produced and
assessed by the SACE Board. The
majority of these examinations take
place in Term 4, during October and
The examinations timetable is
available on the SACE website from
the first semester of each year.
