Units[edit]

The units are organised into stages based on level of difficulty. This means 'P', the preliminary stage, is the easiest, through to 'Stage 3' which is the hardest. Since a school year in Western Australia is usually about 40 weeks, and a WACE unit is 16 weeks long, units are usually grouped together and taught together. This can be done concurrently (Both units taught in a mix) or separately (one unit in semester one, and one unit in semester two).
