The QCE is Queensland’s senior secondary schooling qualification. It allows students to choose from a wide range of learning options like senior school subjects, vocational education and training, workplace and community learning. The Queensland Certificate of Education is generally awarded to students completing Year 12, though alternative avenues of study are available.
All Queensland courses of study are awarded credits, which can contribute towards a QCE. These courses are divided into:
- Core courses
- Preparatory courses
- Enrichment courses
- Advanced courses
In order to be awarded a QCE, a student must be awarded at least 20 credits from their studies, in which at least 12 credits must come from Core courses. Core courses not fully completed may also contribute some credits, however the level of achievement must be at least a Sound Achievement (or Pass). In addition, a student must pass the literacy and numeracy requirements. Even if failing to receive a QCE at the end of Year 12, a student may continue to work towards one, though credits expire after nine years. A student’s result in the Queensland Core Skills Test also appears on their QCE as a letter grade.
The Queensland Core Skills Test was a statewide test formerly completed by all Queensland year twelve students who were eligible for an Overall Position and was optional (but beneficial) for tertiary rank students.
