VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education)

The VCE provides students with a post-compulsory certificate which allows students to access diverse pathways beyond school and attests to their readiness to enter post-compulsory education. It is awarded to students who satisfactorily complete a program of studies as described by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). This program for a full time student at Marian College will consist of units taken over four semesters or two years. At the end of Year 12 students would normally receive an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) which can be used for University and / or Tertiary and Further education (TAFE) entrance.

Victorian Curriculum Assessment Requirements:

To be awarded a certificate in VCE, students must satisfactorily complete a total of no fewer than 16 units over the two years of VCE study.

These satisfactorily completed units must include:

  • Three units of the common study of English (1,2,3 and 4) or English language or Literature
  • Three sequences of Units 3 and 4 studies other than English

At Marian College, full time students studying under normal conditions would:

At Year 11:

  • Undertake six sequences of Units 1 and 2 studies including English or Literature plus Religious Education, OR
  • Undertake five sequences of Units 1 and 2 studies including English or Literature, plus one sequence of Units 3 and 4 studies, (approved by Head of Faculty) plus Religious Education
