2016 VCE Results and ATAR Service

A joint venture between the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC)

The VCAA and VTAC offer three options for accessing VCE results and the ATAR: internet, SMS and mail.

VCE results and ATARs are available from the 2016 VCE Results and ATAR Service from 7.00 am Monday 12 December.

Only 2016 results are recorded on this service.

You will need your VCAA student number and your results service PIN. Both the VCAA and VTAC encourage you to change your default PIN, which is the first four digits of your birthdate (for example, 17 July = 1707), to ensure you select a result service PIN that
will enable the security of your result data.

If you have registered with VTAC, please note that your VTAC ID and PIN are separate from your results service PIN. Only your VCAA student number and results service PIN can be used to access the 2016 VCE Results and ATAR Service.



The internet service is free and available 24 hours a day from 7.00 am Monday 12 December until 5.00 pm Friday 16 December.


19 787 888 SMS cost $1.10 max. (incl. GST)

To register to receive your results and ATAR by SMS, send a text message as follows:

  • student number – eight digits only, not the letter
  • space
  • PIN (four digits)
  • send to 19 787 888.

Ensure your mobile is registered to receive and send premium text messages.

Salmat – SMS cost $1.10 max. (incl. GST). Obtain bill payer’s permission before using this service. Call 1800 501 083 for help with SMS registration.

You can register between 9.00 am Monday 7 November and midnight Sunday 11 December.

Requests sent after this may be delayed.

You will receive your results from 7.00 am Monday 12 December.

SMS access is available until 5.00 pm Friday 16 December.

SMS results are reported by using the first two alpha characters and numbers of the study. For example, Further Mathematics is represented by MA07, Mathematical Methods by MA11 and Specialist Mathematics by MA09.

Students should be aware that scored VCE VET studies (such as VCE VET Business and VCE VET Hospitality) only have two graded assessments – one school-based and one exam.

To find out more about VCE examination results, a statement of marks can be obtained. Further information is available on the VCAA website: www.vcaa.vic.edu.au


VCE and VCAL results and ATAR statements will arrive in the mail from Tuesday 13 December. Printed ATAR statements are only mailed to VTAC applicants who have submitted and paid for a course application. Students who have not applied for courses can request an ATAR statement from the VTAC website: www.vtac.edu.au. Administrative fees apply.

VCE and VCAL certificates are distributed by schools and colleges, rather than mailed with the results.


Go to the Post Results and ATAR Service (PRAS) page for more information.

All the information on this page is published in the VCE Exams Navigator 2016 for students. VCE providers will be sent bulk copies of the VCE Exams Navigator 2016, which should be distributed to students enrolled in VCE Units 3 and 4.
