The QCAA does not provide tuition or course materials. You can download the following resources free of charge (see links on left).
An external syllabus is available for each subject. Each syllabus sets out the aims, objectives, learning experiences and assessment requirements for the subject.
Subject notices are published throughout the year to provide information about this year's examinations.
Assessment reports are published by the end of February each year about the previous year's examination. They provide examination statistics and comments on overall candidate performance. Most assessment reports include the marking scheme or selected candidate responses.
Past papers are actual examination papers from previous years. Examination papers are generally similar in structure from year to year, although they may vary within the requirements of the syllabus.
A sample paper is developed when a syllabus is revised to show the proposed format and structure of future examinations.
The Queensland Languages senior syllabuses (Authority, Extension and External) are developed for second language learners. Queensland legislation does not permit differentiation of syllabuses based on language proficiency, background or heritage.
The syllabuses equate to the national designation of Continuers syllabuses, i.e. syllabuses for students who commenced learning a language in the compulsory years of schooling.
Approved syllabuses are available for use by students who may be first or second language learners, or background or heritage speakers.
