Your study with us is included in your Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR). To receive the ATAR increment you must successfully complete both Monash Extension subjects. Increments are added to your aggregate score.
In 2013, the increment is:
If you enrol in a university course related to your Monash Extension subjects, you will generally be able to gain credit. You may use this to accelerate your degree by going straight to the second year of the subject, or to lighten your first year study load.
You'll gain a taste of university study, which is often more demanding but less structured than school. Learn to motivate yourself, so you move easily from school to university.
Monash Extension students can access resources not normally available to Year 12 students, like:
You'll find more about the resources you can access on the current students website.
You will encounter intellectual challenges and an approach to learning other Year 12 students will not. You'll meet academics who are experts in their field.
Students attending classes will meet other students of similar high academic ability from different schools.
We commend all Monash Extension students for their work with a ceremony at the end of the academic year. The highest achieving students from each subject area receive a certificate and cheque for outstanding achievement.
Monash Extension students can attend special events throughout the year, like the Monash Leadership Day for high achieving students.
There's no risk with Monash Extension. If you fail or withdraw from a subject, there is no record of your status. So it won't be a disadvantage later, when you apply to Monash or another university.
