Students wishing to receive an ATAR contribution for the scored units 3 and 4 sequence of VCE VET Business must undertake scored assessment for the purpose of achieving a study score. This study score can contribute directly to the ATAR, either as one of the student's best four studies (the primary four) or as a fifth or sixth study.
Where a student elects not to receive a study score for the scored units 3 and 4 sequence of VCE VET Business, no contribution to the ATAR will be available.
Students who undertake additional training from Certificate III and achieve a further units 3 and 4 sequence may be eligible for an increment towards their ATAR (10 per cent of the lowest study score in the primary four scaled studies).
The increment is awarded by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). For more information, visit
