Year 11-13 Option Selection

All Year 11 and 12 students are required to study FIVE OR SIX SUBJECTS.

 Most students at Rosmini College go on to study in Year 13.  The majority of students in Year 13 will be attempting to gain University Entrance and NCEA Level 3.

 For this reason, before choosing Level 1 and 2 subjects, students and parents should look at Level 2 and 3 subjects (including those that can be started at a higher level).  If a student has a particular career in mind, the pre-requisites for this should be investigated. 

 Level 1 (Year 11) Courses

  • RE/ Health, PE and English and Maths are compulsory and will be automatically selected.
  • If you are a five subject student, select three subjects plus one reserve subject.
  • If you are a six subject student, select three subjects plus one reserve subject which becomes your fourth subject.
  • If you select General Science you cannot select Physics, Chemistry or Biology.

 Six subjects are only available to students currently in 10ECE. If you wish to discuss this further please see Mr Tim Rout.

Level 2 (Year 12) Courses

  • RE/ Health, PE and English are compulsory and will be automatically selected.
  • If you are a five subject student, three subjects plus one reserve subject.
  • If you select General Science you cannot select Physics, Chemistry or Biology
  • If you are a six subject student, select four subjects plus one reserve subject
  • Most students will select three subjects plus one reserve subject.

Six subjects are only available to students who have been studying six subjects this year. 

Level 3 (Year 13) Courses

All Year 13 students are required to study FIVE options as well as R.E and P.E.

The majority of students in Year 13 will be attempting to gain University Entrance and NCEA Level 3.

For this reason, before choosing Level 3 subjects, students and parents should look at the Level 3 subjects, and ensure if university is a consideration for the future, that 4 of the options chosen are university approved (these subjects are marked ‘*UE Approved’ in this booklet)

If a student has a particular career in mind, the pre-requisites for this should be investigated. 

Important to note at Level 3 (Year 13)

  • RE and PE are compulsory and will be automatically selected.
  • Students need to select 5 other options they want to take in 2018.
  • We recommend students choose one English rich subject.
  • Students planning to go to university need to ensure they have at least four university approved subjects.
  • Students picking up a new academic subject at Year 13 need to have gained at least 14 credits in an English rich subject at Level 2.
