50/50 assessment method
Ranked among the Top 100 New South Wales Schools, according to the NSW Education Standards Authority, AISM provides a holistic and well-rounded education founded on research and data as one of the first to introduce visible learning in its curriculum.
AISM follows the Australian curriculum and recognises the central importance of disciplinary knowledge, skills and understanding, general capabilities and cross-curricular priorities.
Citing this, the HSC is based on a 50/50 assessment method, with half of the final score made up of school-based assignments, exams and projects, and the other from an external assessment.
The course is completed in the Year 11 and Year 12 of the student’s education period, which offers flexibility, a broad range of subjects and an assessment approach similar to that of a university experience.
As such, AISM prepares its students for university programmes along with the visible learning approach, holistic teaching and learning methods to set its students apart from the crowd.
