About Ausmat

 

The Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) is a globally recognised pre-university programme offered at Sunway College since 1987.  The School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia (SCSA), on behalf of the Government of Western Australia, oversees the quality implementation of the AUSMAT programme.

Programme Structure

STRUCTURE
The AUSMAT programme is delivered over two semesters (January and March intakes) or three semesters (September intake).

ASSESSMENT AND EXAMINATIONS
The School Curriculum and Standards, Department of Education 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 examinations.

The school assessment component removes the pressure associated with a single high-stakes end-of-year examination.  A variety of assessment methods such as tests, quizzes, assignments, investigations, research, presentation and examinations will develop students as versatile learners.

Officers appointed by the School Curriculum and Standards directly supervise and conduct examinations. Moreover, all external examination scripts are sent to Western Australia for marking.
