COVID-19 advice

See coronavirus.vic for changes to education services during COVID-19 in Victoria.

General Achievement Test 2021

The GAT has been rescheduled to Thursday 12 August 2021.

The rescheduling of the GAT allows schools time to organise logistics and put COVIDSafe protocols in place, so that students and staff can return onsite to participate safely.

It's important that as many students as possible have the opportunity to sit the GAT. The new date will allow students who may be impacted by school closures, quarantine and the need to self-isolate to participate in the test.

Specific arrangements

We will provide specific advice on the health and safety requirements for conducting the GAT, in line with the health advice at that time.

Consideration of Educational Disadvantage

We will again use the Consideration of Educational Disadvantage (CED) process to finalise VCE results.

The CED process accounts for the disruption to student learning caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It applies to every student completing one or more VCE or scored VCE VET Unit 3–4 sequences in 2021, including Year 10 and 11 students.

It restores a student's results to where they would have been without the disruptions that have occurred throughout the year and makes sure that final VCE results are valid and fair for all students.

Schools and educators

For more information on the CED process and to see latest updates, please visit the Schools and Educators COVID-19 page.

Students and learners – VCE, VCE VET AND VCAL

Victoria's students have shown great initiative, energy and resilience in meeting the challenges that the pandemic has presented.

We receive many enquiries from VCE and VCAL students. If you have questions, please email us or call 1800 134 197.
