A student who is eligible for a Record of School Achievement may enter Preliminary courses.
A student who is not eligible for a Record of School Achievement may enter Preliminary courses:
- if the principal deems that the student has another credential equivalent to the Record of School Achievement; or

If a student is ineligible for the award of a Record of School Achievement at the end of Stage 5 and the principal will not allow provisional entry to Preliminary course(s), the student may:
- repeat some or all Stage 5 courses
