Dear Year 12 VCE students and families,
We hope that you are enjoying a restful break. We are writing to remind you that all students enrolled in one or more VCE or scored VCE VET Unit 3 and 4 sequences are expected to sit the GAT.
The GAT is scheduled to be conducted on Tuesday 5 October, 2021 from 10.00am to 1.15pm.Every year there are some students unable to complete the GAT due to health issues. While the GAT plays an important role in determining final results for the VCE, if a students is unable to complete the GAT because of COVID-19, their finalVCE results will be determined based on their school-based assessment and examination results as well as additional data provided by the school to assist the VCAA to ensure all students receive fair results based on all assessments.
If a student feels unwell or is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they must isolate at home until they receive a negative COVID-19 test and feel well. Any student who has tested positive to COVID-19, is a close contact or has been advised that they must self-quarantine and has not yet been cleared to come out of self-quarantine, must remain at home and will not be allowed to sit the GAT. The student will be eligible for an exemption from the GAT upon providing evidence of their medical status.
Please read the attached document for additional information and email your Team Leader and/or Team Coordinator if you have any COVID-related concerns.
