ATAR contribution

Students wishing to receive an ATAR contribution for the VCE VET Health program Units 3 and 4 sequence 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 increment.

Where a student elects not to receive a study score no contribution to the ATAR will be available.

Where an additional Non-Scored VCE VET Units 3 and 4 sequence is undertaken students may be eligible for a fifth or sixth study increment.

The increment is awarded by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). Further information can be found on the VTAC website:

Where a VCE VET Program Scored Units 3 and 4 sequence is used as an increment, the increment will be calculated using 10% of the scaled score.

Increments for a VCE VET Program Non-Scored Units 3 and 4 sequence will be calculated using 10% of the fourth study score of the primary four.
