New senior assessment and tertiary entrance systems

The new senior assessment and tertiary entrance (SATE) systems will commence for Queensland students who enter Year 11 in 2019.

The new systems include:

Preparing for the new systems

The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) is leading work to develop and implement the new senior assessment processes.

Responsibility for generating a common Year 12 tertiary entrance rank will be transferred from the QCAA to the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC). QTAC will administer this process on behalf of Queensland tertiary institutions.

The Department of Education and Training is committed to ensuring schools, teachers, students and families have time to familiarise themselves with the new systems. The Department will be working with regions and schools to support their transition to the new systems.

Information and resources are available for schools, students and parents to learn more about the changes to senior syllabuses, and new assessment processes on the QCAA website.

Information and resources are also available on the Department of Education and Training website.
