The broad learning pedagogies prepare you well for university level studies and research, and allow you to branch out to many disciplines and specialisations.

AUSMAT score-counting advantages

Students can optimise their ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) University Entrance through the score calculation of Best-4 subjects.

Assurance of quality from School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia

Highly rigorous quality assurance practices and external examinations are conducted, supervised and assessed by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA). Our programme and academic staff development are moderated yearly to ensure quality teaching.

Good track record

Our lecturers rate top in ‘excellent teaching and assessment’ by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia’s Annual Examiners’ Reports. Sunway students have been ranked amongst the best in Western Australia and in the Western Australia programme worldwide.

Pastoral care

Noted for its strong pastoral component, Sunway’s AUSMAT develops a wholesome individual through personalised learning and growth, preparing students for university life and studies. Students are challenged to take multiple approaches to problem solving and critical thinking, nurturing their overall cognitive development. Parents, guardians and sponsors are kept informed on students’ academic performance and progress through regular meetings with our lecturers.

Assessment & Examinations

The School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) conducts yearly moderation exercise to validate that the assessment standards applied at Sunway are consistent with that of Western Australian high schools.
It has a balanced assessment approach of 50% school assessment and 50% external examination. The school assessment component removes the pressure associated with the single end-of-year examination, and provides opportunities to use multiple assessment techniques to help student’s progress – continuous assessments may include topic tests, quizzes, assignments, investigations, research and examinations.
Officers appointed by the SCSA directly supervise and conduct examinations, and all external examination scripts are sent to Western Australia for marking.

Calculation of Numerical Score

AUSMAT provides the benefit of calculating a student’s score based on ‘Best-4’ subjects. These scores are then ranked for the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for university applications.
