English Studies – pilot study

New English Stage 6 syllabuses for implementation from 2018 are now available on the NSW Syllabuses website.

The Board of Studies has been piloting a new Stage 6 English Studies Content Endorsed Course during 2010 in 76 approved schools. The Board has extended the pilot study to include any school wishing to offer the English Studies course for their Preliminary Year candidature from 2011. Official Notices BOS 24/10 and BOS 34/11 provide important information to schools on matters relating to the extension of the pilot study. Schools are reminded that English Studies is a non-ATAR course.
