Eligibility criteria

A student is eligible for Chinese Second Language ​Advanced if:

they have had no more than 7 years of education in a school where Chinese is the medium of instruction

the highest level of education attained in a school where Chinese is the medium of instruction is no greater than the equivalent of Year 7 in a Victorian school.

The time periods referred to in these criteria will be counted cumulatively since the time of the student’s birth.

As the formal education commencement age for a Victorian student is 5 years of age, then all applicants will be deemed to have commenced formal education by the end of their 5th year of age, regardless of the setting.
