Notice 46 2019

Notice to Schools 46/2019 − 29 May 2019

Publication of the 2019 VCE examination timetable

Principals/Directors, VCE coordinators and VASS administrators

The 2019 VCE examination timetable has been endorsed by the VCAA Board and is now available online.

The 2019 timetable has been developed using 2019 VCE and scored VCE VET Unit 34 enrolments. It addresses the following key priorities:

  • Minimise the number of students required to sit more than two examinations on any one day.
  • Minimise the number of clashes where students have two examinations in the same session.
  • Avoid scheduling another examination on the same day as English and English as an Additional Language (EAL).
  • Create a timetable that best accommodates the marking and processing requirements of each of the VCE and VCE VET written examinations, providing the VCAA with sufficient time to ensure that students receive their final VCE results by mid-December 2019.

The examination dates and times for 2019 written examinations will now display in VASS. Student Examination/Assessment Timetables for the 2019 VCE written examination period are not yet finalised. This information will be available on VASS in the week beginning Monday 9 September 2019.
