Schools are reminded that the School Curriculum and Standards Authority does not provide a service to determine the year group into which a student should be placed when arriving from overseas.

Schools are required to determine the most appropriate academic year to enrol a new student, based on information and academic records provided by the student/parents.

If a school considers that a student has completed the equivalent of Year 11 studies overseas or interstate, a Year 11 equivalent studies for a WACE form should be completed.  This can be found on our website via https://scsa.wa.edu.au/forms/forms under WACE Equivalence.

The equivalence service that the Authority provides is for overseas students that have completed their schooling overseas and looking to get their qualifications equated to a year level here in Western Australia, not for students that are part way through their schooling and seeking enrolment in to the school system in Western Australia.
