Under this legislation, a standard curriculum of education will be set up for all regions of Ostentia. The curriculum will be decided by the examination boards themselves (by way of a group committee). However, small deviations will be allowable between exam boards. The following lists the subjects which will have to be studied (as mentioned above, subject content will be devised by the examination boads):

A basic education in the following is required for both OSACs (Ostetentian Secondary Achievement Certificate) and pre-OSACs:

  • Science
  • Ostentian Language
  • Maths
  • One other language
  • Information Technology (At OSAC level this can be any information technology based course, including Business Studies)
  • Personal, Social and Health Education

At OSAC level, optional subjects will also be selected in addition to the above. Ostentian Literature is compulsory only for more able students.

The following are required for pre-OSAC (in addition to the above):

  • Design Technology
  • Physical Education
  • Religious Education
  • Music
  • Art
  • Drama
  • Geography
  • History

At OFC (Ostentian Foundation Certificate) and OHC (Ostentian Higher Certificate) levels it will be required to continue with PSHE education, however, like all the other levels, it results in no award.

Funding for this will be obtained from a slight tax raise to 35% BTR. Further budget spending will be allocated to other areas.
