VCE Curriculum | Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School

VCE Curriculum

In the final years of secondary education students develop more mature and independent ways of working. These years are challenging and rewarding as girls work towards their independent lives as young adults.

Course selection in the VCE years has significant implications for future study options and career paths. The School provides systematic and timely support through its subject selection process. It is important to remember that students do best when they choose subjects they enjoy and in which they are confident.

Students typically complete 22 units – eleven studies over the two years of the VCE:

  • twelve units (six studies) at Year 11 and
  • 10 units (five studies) at Year 12.

In addition, all Year 11 girls undertake both Ethics and Physical Recreation, whilst all Year 12 girls undertake General Studies.
