Best wishes to all students sitting VCE written exams from Tuesday 10 November. We know it’s been a challenging year and we thank you for your extraordinary commitment and patience.
We’ve put together a checklist to help you get through the next few weeks, including having everything you need for the exams. We also want to make sure you get your results on time.
- Read our suggestions for looking after your physical and mental health in the coming weeks.
- Check your examination date on VCAA examinations timetable and materials you can take into the examinations and our student FAQs.
- Read the COVIDSafe guidelines for VCE examinations so that you know how to keep safe during the examinations.
- Read through the VCAA rules for examinations to make sure you are aware of what you can and can’t do during an examination.
- You should have received an email from the VCAA in October and November to check that your results email address is correct. If you haven’t and you would like to make sure you receive your results on the morning they are released (30 December), you will need to contact your school administration to check that your results email address is correct.
- You should also check your consent for awards and results publication. This is consent for your name and results to be published, for example on the VCAA website (VCE High Achievers) and by media organisations such as the Herald-Sun and the Age. Once this information is published it’s difficult to change it, if you decide that you wish to withdraw or give consent. Your consent is critical – we want to know whether you say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to publication of your name and results.
- Check that your school has the correct postal address on your Full Student Details Report – this information should be kept up to date throughout the year, but is very important for results and certificate delivery.
- Check that your name is correct on the Full Student Details Report, because this is how your name will be printed on your certificate and results statement. This will need to be correct for tertiary study and employment applications. If you need to have these documents reissued with your correct name, you will have to pay a replacement fee to the VCAA, and it may cause delays in your study or employment applications.
