The Research Project is a compulsory subject, which most students undertake in Year 12. It is worth 10 credits, and students need to achieve a C- grade or higher to gain the SACE.

The Research Project gives them a chance to explore something they are interested in, in-depth. It could be a scientific study, an art project, a community-based project, a historical investigation, or any number of other options.

It gives students a chance to use their creativity and initiative while developing research, project management, analysis and evaluation skills, which are important for work and further study.

There are two types of Research Project students can choose from:

·         Research Project A – your external assessment can be presented in a variety of ways, such as a PowerPoint presentation or short film (this option does NOT allow students to use the final grade towards the calculation of an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR)).

·         Research Project B – your external assessment must be a written report, and you can use your final grade in Research Project B as part of your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
