Authority subjects are based on syllabuses that have been approved and issued by the QSA. Results in Authority subjects can count in the calculation of OPs and FPs, the most common selection devices used by the tertiary sector.
Authority-registered subjects are developed from Study Area Specifications (SASs) and generally include substantial vocational and practical components. Results in these subjects are not used in the calculation of OPs and FPs.
Short courses are one-semester courses developed to meet a specific curriculum need. They each contribute 1 credit toward a QCE. Results in these subjects are not used in the calculation of OPs and FPs.
Note: The year denotes the year of syllabus publication.
