Electives

 Year 8, 9 and 10 Electives

In order to offer Bayview College students the widest range of subjects during the elective program, a two year rotation of subjects is utilized. This allows students to select their most desirable subjects each year from the below listing of courses.  Subjects listed in BLUE may be chosen by Year 8, 9 or 10 students. All other subjects are available to Years 9 and 10 students only. Subjects with an asterisk* next to them may be undertaken twice as different content is covered each semester.

Students in Year10 have the opportunity to undertake an Accelerated VCE subject. In order to prepare for this students should undertake the relevant ‘Pre-VCE’ preparation subject during their Year 9 electives and ensure they are achieving a Distinction average in their grades. A student who excels in a particular subject area may wish to study a Pre-VCE subject during Year 8 in order to attempt a Unit 1 VCE subject during Year 9. Minimum grades must be achieved to access this.
