If your school has closed down since you attended, please contact the Archive and Records unit of the Department of Education and Training on (03) 9637 2000.
If you have completed secondary schooling overseas and would like to have your overseas secondary qualification assessed, you will need to
apply for a Statement of Equivalent Qualification.
You will need to supply certified copies of your education documents with your application.
Please note that the VCAA does not assess tertiary or university qualifications. You will need to contact the
Overseas Qualifications Unit (www.liveinvictoria.vic.gov.au).
There is no penalty for repeating the VCE or individual subjects; however the same unit can not count twice towards the VCE unit requirements.
The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) advises that it does not apply a penalty for repeating VCE studies when calculating the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) (formerly known as the ENTER).
