Year 10 Subject Selection
Morrisby Assessment Tips
Most of Year 10 have now finished their Morrisby career assessment and are commencing their subject selection plenaries.
We hope you have found the Morrisby process to be very interesting and helpful.
We recommend you spend some time exploring the Morrisby online report to make it work effectively for you, and to toggle the settings if you need the report to more accurately reflect your career aims.
For example, you can:
- Toggle the Qualifications that you wish to receive in your report, to generate more career options (eg are you considering TAFE, uni, high ATAR, apprenticeships etc – use the ‘What if’ Function).
- Change the emphasis on your report depending on the component of your results that resonates with you (eg your special interests, career interests, aptitude etc)
- ‘STAR’ the careers that you are interested in, and to view the information that sits within the careers you are interested in.
- Share the information with your parents/carers (which we recommend)
If you would like any assistance in making the tool work more effectively, don’t hesitate to contact Careers for an appointment or pop in to say hello.
If you are in Year 10 and you are interested in a TAFE TVET course in Year 11, please make an appointment to see Careers.
We suggest Year 10 students visit this UAC page for information regarding University entry.
