State Government confirms VCE Exams to be taken this year
It was announced yesterday that VCE exams will begin in early November and that results will be made available to students this year.

Minister for Education James Merlino announced yesterday that VCE exams will begin in the week commencing 9 November – a month earlier than expected when learning from home was first announced.

Minister for Education James Merlino said that this announcement provides a level of certainty to senior-secondary students in what is a very disrupted time.
“The revised dates mean students will get their results and an ATAR in 2020, giving them a clear pathway to further study or employment next year – and a break to celebrate the end of school.”
The bring-forward of exams is a result of the earlier than expected return of on-site learning, which will begin for Year 11 and 12 students – and Year 10 students doing VCE subjects – this coming Tuesday, 26th May. This earlier return to school is based on the advice of Victoria’s Chief Health Officer.

The November date will give sufficient time for teachers and students to complete adjusted VCE Unit 4 learning and school-based assessments and prepare for VCE examinations.

Exams will be completed by Wednesday 2nd December, allowing ATAR scores to be calculated and VCE, VCAL students to get their results before the end of 2020.

Importantly, the change means university offers can be made to Victorian students like their peers around Australia.

The General Achievement Test (GAT), usually held in June, will also be held towards the end of Term 3, on Wednesday 9th September 2020.
