Senior College at Marist

Senior College students are able to complete their Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) while achieving an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for university entry or vocational education and training (VET) qualifications. Senior College students select their own program of study and the College encourages a selection of a mixed course of pre-tertiary, non pre-tertiary and VET subjects to suit future training and education pathways.

Senior College students can use their own computer for all classes and course work under the Bring Your Own Device program. Further information is available here.

The Plus 10 program provides students with opportunities to undertake work experience, engage in a range of opportunities for investigating career options and develop a pathway plan.

Contact the Careers and Pathways Coordinator for information about the Plus 10 Certificate, careers advice, pathway planning and the ATAR.

The Tasmanian Certificate of Education is overseen by the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification. Information evenings and opportunities to discuss pathway plans and TCE subject choices are held throughout the year. Faculty and subject teachers are available at Subject Advice Night to discuss subject offerings.

We encourage parents and students to refer to the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification website for detailed information about specific subjects.

Students are able to undertake a range of VET subjects and achieve nationally recognised qualifications at Marist. Courses can be accessed through a range of providers including the Cradle Coast Trade Training Centre located on our campus.


Detailed information about our TCE and VET subjects can be found in the Senior College Subject Selection Guide.

Assessment modes and demands vary with subjects. Pre-tertiary courses usually include an external examination or require students to submit a portfolio of work. Students undertake a cycle of continuous assessment throughout the year in all subjects. Culminating summative tasks are completed to standards specified by the TQA. Teachers engage in moderation processes to support validation of internal results. Examinations are usually held twice a year for TQA level 3 courses. Examination guidelines are provided by the TQA.
