PREPARING STUDENTS FOR LIFE
GLOBAL UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE
About 50% of AISM graduates were accepted into universities worldwide, while 30% of our graduates go to Australian universities. The rest choose to pursue their tertiary education in Malaysia.
DISTANCE EDUCATION PATHWAYS
Pre-University students have the opportunity to complete a wide range of subjects through one to one mentoring programs via distance education.
FLEXIBILITY TO OPT FOR BROADER SKILL SET
While some have it nailed down right from the start, many students are unsure of what they want to specialise in their tertiary education. Therefore, students can choose to specialise for the Higher School Certificate or keep their options open by studying a broad base of subjects. The only mandatory subject is English, which can be studied at different ability levels. Students have the option of studying at least 6 subjects in Year 11 and 5 subjects in Year 12.
BALANCED ASSESSMENT APPROACH MIRRORING TERTIARY EDUCATION
Fifty percent of the Higher School Certificate final examination is assessed internally through various projects, assignments, tests, presentations and other methods. The remaining 50% is determined by end of the year examinations set by New South Wales Education Standards Authority. This experience of consistently being assessed through varied methods mirrors the experience of being in university where a lot of focus is placed on assignments and presentations, rather than examinations.
RESIDENTIAL LEADERSHIP CAMP AT AUSTRALIA’S #1 RANKING UNIVERSITY
Pre-University students have the opportunity to attend a leadership camp at Trinity College, University of Melbourne. This provides a university residential college life experience, in preparation for their first year of tertiary education. During this camp, students go through a series of leadership activities and will be mentored by the high-achieving University of Melbourne students.
Students have a choice of selecting English, Advanced English or Advanced English or English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D), which must meet the NSW Board of Studies ESL criteria.
