A standard 1.0 value unit is delivered over at least 55 hours and can be as long as 63 hours. To be awarded a course, students must complete at least the minimum number of hours and units over the whole minor or major – both requirements must be met. The number of units may vary according to the school timetable.
Number of standard units to meet course requirements
Students studying units in this course must study units that do not cover content previously studied as part of a History course in Years 11 and 12. Please refer to Duplication of Content rules below.
Duplication of Content Rules
Students cannot be given credit towards the requirements for a Senior Secondary Certificate for a unit that significantly duplicates content in a unit studied in another course. The responsibility for preventing undesirable overlap of content studied by a student rests with the principal and the teacher delivering the course. Students will only be given credit for covering the content once.
