Authority subjects are based on syllabuses that have been approved and issued by the QCAA. Results in Authority subjects can count in the calculation of OPs and FPs, the most common selection devices used by the tertiary sector.

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.
