Special comments about delivery of the program
Current students have chosen to study this course at Box Hill’s City campus which is a short walking distance from Flinders Street Station. For VCE students, this course is not scored. It does qualify for 3/4 sequence and students are eligible to gain an ATAR increment (10% of the lowest study score of the primary four studies)
