Notice to Schools 187/2020 – 9 December 2020
Amendment to the VCE Systems Engineering study design
Principals/Directors, VCE Coordinators and Teachers of VCE Systems Engineering
The following amendment has been made to the VCE Systems Engineering study design, effective immediately.
The ‘NAND’ logic gate diagram in the cross-study specifications on page 13 of the study design has been updated.
For Unit 3 and 4, students do not need to know logic gates, but will need to demonstrate an understanding of logic statements as they are applied and utilised in coding. Students also need to know the commonly used symbolic representation of the electrotechnological components as listed in the key knowledge sections of the study design.
The amended study design is now available on the VCE Systems Engineering study webpage.
Principals/Directors should ensure that teachers of VCE Systems Engineering use the updated study design.
