Can students lose QCE points and how does this happen?

The Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) is obtained when a student completes a set amount of learning worth a minimum of 20 credits. The students need to complete the set amount of learning, at the set standard, in a set pattern, while meeting literacy and numeracy requirements which you can see here. These credits can be obtained from a combination of subjects, TAFE courses, or other recognised studies. 

QCE credits obtained from core courses of study are ‘banked’ and cannot be lost once obtained, so the student can not lose QCE points once the credits are completed. 

When obtaining QCE credits from vocational training, the credits are awarded through completion of certificate and diploma courses. The QCAA has extra information concerning areas such as partial completion and duplication of learning.
