Past Exams and Assessment Reports
Agricultural Systems Level 3 introduces learners to farming systems and operations through an integrated Science, Technologies, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) inquiry.

STEM education integrates concepts that are usually delivered as separate courses in different classes and emphasises the application of knowledge to real-life situations. STEM learning is typically based around finding a solution to a real-world problem and tends to emphasise project based learning.

In this course learners explore the various systems and sub-systems that support agricultural production and maximise productivity. They learn the theory of food and fibre production, and associated agricultural industries, through a focus on ecosystems, plant and animal productions systems, business and financial management systems and agricultural technologies systems. Learner understanding is demonstrated by researching a case study and by developing an engineering solution to an agricultural problem or situation.

Agriculture offers Tasmanians opportunities in a wide range of careers spanning aspects of science, business, tourism, design and engineering. Agricultural careers are many and varied in the government and private sectors on a state, national and international level. Agricultural Systems Level 3 enables learners to develop the skills and knowledge that can be transferred into a range of post-secondary options including: employment; self-employment; and further education or training.
