Years 11 and 12 begin to refine student focus on successful pathways to industry, further education, or employment.
Year 11 & 12 Curriculum Overview
At Oakey State High School, Senior Students are able to
select from "multiple pathways" to their chosen career.
This may include:
Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) eligibility
The calculation of an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) will be based on a student's:
- best five General subject results or
- best results in a combination of four General subject results plus an Applied subject result
- best results in a combination of four General subject results plus a Certificate III or higher VET qualification
The Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) has responsibility for ATAR calculations.
Eligibility for an ATAR will require satisfactory completion of a QCAA English subject.
Satisfactory completion will require students to attain a result that is equivalent to a Sound Level of Achievement in one of five subjects — English, Essential English, Literature, English and Literature Extension, or English as an Additional Language.
While students must meet this standard to be eligible to receive an ATAR, it is not mandatory for a student's English result to be included in the calculation of their ATAR.

At Oakey State High School, students can access VET in the following ways:
- OSHS is a registered training organisation (RTO) and offers qualifications on-site
