Fax numbers for examination centre messages: General Achievement Test (GAT)

Principals/Directors, VASS Administrators and VCE Coordinators

Main Points

Examination centre messages for the 2017 GAT will be sent via fax as well as through VASS and emailed to the school's official email inbox.

The VCAA has compiled the list of fax numbers to be used for examination centre messages from the current VASS school file. The list contains the school fax numbers as entered on VASS.

VASS Administrators must check the school fax number as displayed in the VASS menu: School Admin > Modify School Details. This is the fax number currently stored by the VCAA. 

If the fax number shown is incorrect, if a different number is to be used for examination centre messages, or if the school no longer wishes to receive the examination message via fax, contact the Examinations Unit:
