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 7.00am 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 7.00am Monday 12 December until 5.00pm Friday 16 December.


SMS registration has been suspended due to the ongoing investigation regarding the premature release of results that occurred on Wednesday 7 December.

Students that registered before this date will receive their results as normal via SMS on Monday 12 December from 7.00am.

For students that were unable to register for SMS results, the internet service resultsandatar.vic.edu.au is available from 7.00am on Monday 12 December. Results will be sent via post as normal.

For further information, please see joint statements made by VTAC and VCAA.


VCE and VCAL results and ATAR statements will arrive in the mail from Monday 12 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.

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.
