Notice 72 2019

Notice to Schools 72/2019 − 17 July 2019

Last day for VCE Unit 4 or VCE VET scored Unit 3 and 4 units of competency withdrawal

Principals/Directors, VASS Administrators and VCE, VCAL and VET Coordinators

Schools are reminded that Monday 22 July 2019 is the last day for VCE Unit 4 or VCE VET scored Unit 3–4 unit of competency withdrawals. After this date VASS will not allow students to be withdrawn from VCE Unit 4 studies or units of competency for VCE VET scored Unit 3–4 sequences other than for late withdrawals on compassionate grounds where an application has been made by the school and approved by the VCAA. 

Note that withdrawing a student from a VCE Unit 4 study may affect a student’s eligibility to complete the VCE or VCAL in 2019. Schools should run VCE and VCAL student eligibility reports for students before changing any records. This will ensure that students who intend to complete a senior secondary certificate in 2019 will be able to meet the eligibility requirements.

Schools should also take care when withdrawing students from VCE Unit 4 studies as a late fee may apply if a student is incorrectly withdrawn and needs to be reinstated in the Unit 4 study.

Action required

Principals/Directors should ensure that VCE Unit 4 or VCE VET scored Unit 3–4 units of competency withdrawals are actioned on VASS by the due date.

Critical dates

Monday 22 July 2019

Refer to the Last day for VCE Unit 4 or VCE VET scored Unit 3-4 UoC withdrawals (docx - 65.09kb).

Schools should be attentive when selecting an appropriate VET Assessing Group; this is where the delivery of VET curriculum and assessment is taking place. The Assessing Group will be used to define which moderation group students will be placed into for the purposes of statistical moderation, when undertaking a scored VCE VET Unit 3-4 program. The selection of the correct Assessing Group is therefore important if students are not to be potentially disadvantaged.
