What is QCE?
The QCE is Queensland’s senior school qualification, which is awarded to eligible students usually at the end of Year 12. Every young Queenslander must be registered with the QCAA during the year before the young person’s compulsory participation phase begins. Generally, schools will register young people in Year 10.
The QCE offers flexibility in what is learnt, as well as where and when learning occurs. Students have a wide range of learning options; these can include senior school subjects, vocational education and training, workplace and community learning, as well as university subjects undertaken while at school.
The requirements for a QCE are different to those for tertiary entrance. See the Tertiary Entrance section of this website for more information on pathways to tertiary study.
