Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE)
VCE Subjects and Structure
Most subjects are made up of four units which your child studies over two years (one unit per semester):
Students usually choose between 20 to 24 units over two years, but they can take as long as they need to complete VCE. If your child needs longer than two years to complete VCE, please contact the school. Wangaratta High School also offers VCE units from Year 10.
Read the VCE information at Youth Central for advice on how your child should choose their VCE subjects.
Study designs for each subject can be found on the VCAA website.

The Arts/ Performing Arts
Each unit has outcomes which describe what students are expected to know and be able to do. Your child needs to demonstrate the outcomes to satisfactorily complete the unit.
VCE units are assessed through classroom activities and exams (in Year 12). Exams are marked by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority.
When graduating VCE, your child will receive a VCE study score for each subject and an overall ATAR score if they've applied to University.
