2021 VCE Examination Centres, Special Examination Arrangements, Derived Examination Score and Irregularity application closing dates

Principals/directors, VCE coordinators and VASS administrators

Student Examination/Assessment Timetables and Special Examination Arrangements Advice Slips for the 2021 VCE examinations are available on VASS. Read the advice provided in the VASS Guide (pdf - 312.13kb) before producing and distributing individual timetables and advice slips.

Specific closing dates (pdf - 299.62kb) for submitting a Derived Examination Score (DES) application for each student’s VCE examinations are listed at the end of the Student Examination/Assessment Timetable report for individual students.

Schools can submit an Irregularity application where an event has occurred and the principal (or principal’s delegate) considers that, despite any remedial action taken, the performance of a student (or group of students) may have been materially adversely affected. The VCAA must receive an Irregularity application no later than seven days after the relevant examination. Application forms can be downloaded from VASS.
