QCE Credits

WORKING TOWARDS A QUEENSLAND CERTIFICATE OF EDUCATION (qCE) 

 

To be eligible for a Queensland Certificate of Education (a QCE), students must achieve at least 20 credits in their Learning Account. A minimum of 12 credits must come from completed Core courses of study.

At least 1 credit must come from Core studies completed while enrolled at a Queensland school.

The remaining 8 credits can come from a combination of core, preparatory, enrichment or advanced courses, with preparatory studies contributing a maximum of 6 credits.  Students must also meet the QCE literacy and numeracy requirements.

Any questions specific to your own circumstances should be directed to the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA).

Adding to your Learning Account

Your Learning Account is usually opened in Year 10 and a LUI (Learner Unique Identifier) is assigned to you at this time. You can continue to work towards your QCE for up to seven years after finishing Year 12.  If you want to add to your Learning Account after this period of time, you will need to contact QCAA directly to add these credits.
