Are you ready for the new Chinese & Japanese Syllabuses in 2019?

From 2019 (only 78 days away at the time of writing), all the Year 11 and 12 students will face the new syllabus, curriculum, and grade on a different assessment model.

It is the biggest changes for Queensland senior schooling in more than 40 years.

The main changes are:

  • Changing from OP to ATAR (Australian Tertiary Administration Rank).
  • A total of 80 senior syllabuses will be reviewed, including Chinese and Japanese syllabuses.
  • For most subjects including Chinese and Japanese, external assessments will contribute 25% to a student’s final result. 
  • From a syllabus to subject result.
