Western Australia

In Western Australia, students who complete year 11 and 12 studies gain a Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE). The WACE framework has recently replaced the former system based upon the Tertiary Entrance Exam (TEE).

The WACE program is administered by the W.A. Curriculum Council, which is responsible for the accreditation of senior school courses, as well as the conduct of the year 12 external examinations and the assessment of student achievements.

The W.A. Curriculum Council recognises academic prowess through a range of exhibitions, awards and medals.

  • General Exhibitions are awarded to the top 40 students based on their averaged scaled marks in five courses and/or subjects.
  • The two Beazley Medals are awarded to the top students overall from the academic (highest General Exhibition score) and vocational programs (best VET results).
  • Subject/Course Exhibitions are awarded to the students who obtain the highest combined mark in each WACE course or subject.
  • Certificates of Distinction are awarded to the top 0.5% of students in each subject based on their combined marks from school assessments and examinations.
  • Certificates of Commendation (formerly Certificates of Excellence) are awarded to students who obtain 20 or more 'A' grades in course units or equivalents and achieve the WACE.
  • Details of Western Australia's top students and award winners can be viewed in the various reports below.
