Subject Selection

This subject selection form is only available for new students

HSC Subject Selection

Newington strongly recommends that boys choose at least 13 units.

  • 2 Units of English are compulsory.
  • Consider this list of courses carefully and choose at least 10 units in addition to the compulsory 2 Units for English subjects.
  • Your choices must add up to at least 12 Units including English.

Classes can only be offered if sufficient numbers permit. At this stage English is offered as 2 Unit or 2 Unit ESL. The final placement of boys into Advanced or Standard English will be made during the course of Year 11, based on assessment marks, options and class marks.

Only one Category B subject can count towards the ATAR, but boys may elect to do two of these subjects. Please note that students who wish to apply for an ATAR must complete at least 8 Units of Category A subjects in Year 12 in order to be eligible.

The subjects you have selected here are a wish list only and not your final selection. There is no guarantee that these subjects will be formed next year. While the school does its utmost to accommodate the interests of each boy, it is not always possible for each student to study all of their initial choices. The availability of a subject will be dependent upon the class sizes predicted by the interest shown during the subject selection process.

IB Subject Selection

Students are required to select one subject from each of the six groups that correspond to the principal domains of knowledge. At least three, and not more than four, are taken at higher level (HL), the others at standard level (SL). Instead of a Group 6 subject, a candidate may select an additional subject from Groups 2-4. In addition, students study Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and participate in the Community, Action, Service (CAS) program.
