H classification is given to a year 11 and 12 course which is designed and accredited by an Australian higher education provider and the ACT BSSS. Successful completion of the course can be recognised towards an undergraduate degree with that provider. Students can study a maximum of two H courses.
Recognition towards the Senior Secondary Certificate and Tertiary Entrance Statement
Students can include H courses/units to meet the requirements for an ACT Senior Secondary Certificate and Tertiary Entrance Statement. The grade(s) achieved in the unit(s) will be recorded on the Senior Secondary Certificate using the university descriptors.
If students complete sufficient H units to form a course, then the H course is reported separately on the Senior Secondary Certificate and Tertiary Entrance Statement. The score achieved by the student in the units will be used in calculating a course score. Scaled H course scores may contribute to a student's Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) calculation.
If students do not complete enough H units to form a course, the units may be included with the relevant home college T course. The H units will be used to determine the course type (ie Major, Major/Minor, Double Major) but cannot be used in the calculation of the raw course score.
Students interested in studying a H course should enquire at their college or contact the university.
ANU is currently the only provider of H courses through the ANU Extension Program (formally known as ANU Secondary College).
