2021 General Achievement Test – to be rescheduled

The 2021 General Achievement Test (GAT) scheduled for next Wednesday 9 June 2021 will be rescheduled to a date to be determined. We expect this to be in coming weeks.

This decision will support schools and non-school senior secondary providers to fully focus on completing coursework and school-based assessments on return to classrooms. The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) is currently determining the most appropriate date for the rescheduled 2021 GAT, and we will keep you updated.

VCE/VCAL Students – Coursework and Assessments

To support schools and non-school senior secondary providers to complete school-based assessment that may need to be delayed due to current restrictions, VCE Unit 3 School-assessed Task scores currently due to be submitted to the VCAA on Friday 11 June 2021 will be extended by two weeks and are now due on Friday 25 June 2021 (end of Term).

Impacted VCE Studies:

  • Algorithmics (HESS) – School-assessed Task 1
  • Art – Criteria 1–5
  • Applied Computing: Data Analytics – Criteria 1–5
  • Applied Computing: Software Development – Criteria 1–5
  • Media – Criteria 1–4
  • Product Design and Technology – Criteria 1–3

Finally, the last day for Indicative Grades for Extended Investigation Critical Thinking Test currently due on Wednesday 16 June 2021 will also be extended and will now be due on Friday 25 June 2021 (end of Term).

We will continue to monitor restrictions and impact, and seek to adjust these arrangements further should this be necessary.
