To meet the graduation requirements of the VCE, a student must complete a total of no fewer than 16 Units; a Unit equates to one semester of study. In Year 11 students at St Bede’s usually undertake seven Units in Semester 1 (seven Unit 1s) and seven Units in Semester 2 (seven Unit 2s). In Year 12, students usually complete five Units in Semester 1 (five Unit 3s) and five more Units in Semester 2 (five Unit 4s); these are in addition to any Units which may have been completed in Year 10. The “average” St Bede’s student would therefore undertake around 25 Units from Year 10 to 12. In order to satisfy VCE requirements, students must pass a minimum of 16 Units and any sequence MUST include:
- Three Units of the English (Units 1-4), English Language (Units 1-4) or English Literature (Units 1-4)
- Three sequences of Units 3 & 4 studies other than English; all Units 3 and 4 must be taken as a sequence
